Day 13 / 103 - Jupiter: Planetary Giant

Earlier this week, my children and I attended a planetarium movie at the Clay Center's ElectricSky theater.  We traveled to the outer reaches of our Solar System for a tour of giant Jupiter and the Jovian system.  We discovered how different this planet is from others as well as learning some of the mysteries behind its many moons. Following the movie, we listened to a star talk in the planetarium as we witnessed 10,000 stars fill the domed screen with the night sky.  It was a perfect precursor for our study of Astronomy later this fall.
