Yes, it is a bit like cooking, but without the mixing and heat.  (The clean up still exists though!)  I have offered an adult-oriented astronomy program to libraries for a couple of years now, which has been incredibly well-received.  I have been asked if I had a children's program.  Though I never put one together previously, I had thought about what I would do for one.  This last week I got asked if I would present at a camp for 6 to 12 year olds, and decided I better put a presentation together that works for that age group.

One aspect I thought would be fun  to share is to show how craters are made.  It is one thing to see an animation from a NASA video; it is another to actually witness an impactor striking "soil" and forming a crating / producing ejecta

The Nightlight

This blog includes what to see in the night and daytime skies, thoughts on telescopes, binoculars, and other astronomy observing accessories and equipment, plus my own occasional notes on objects I've seen and observed. Oh, and the random theater or other "my take on life" post. In other words, there is always something interesting. Check it out.
