We thoroughly enjoyed our day at the Calne Scouts group. The children took a journey through the solar system – from zip wiring on Mercury to skiing on Pluto, with our show ‘Great Planet Adventures’. Of course the show was to help them with their astronomy badge, so we also took a tour of the night sky for that evening, and showed them some winter constellations. Pointing out interesting objects that can be found with the naked eye or a small pair of binoculars along the way . We also had some telescopes for the children to try out (albeit on terrestrial targets due to the time of day!) and some real meteorites.
