Children at Wimblington’s Thomas Eaton School had a glimpse into the night sky on Tuesday with a special visit by a travelling planetarium.
Astronomer Mick Morton took along the StarLincs Planetarium to give all the school’s pupils a chance to learn more about the solar system its planets and stars. Teaching children in their various year groups.
The special lessons were funded by the Parent Teacher Association with other funding including a donation from the Parkfield Sports Club quiz night.
Mr Morton talked about the various planets and even gave instructions on how they can spot Jupiter, which is clearly visible in a clear night sky and also Venus, which is visible just before sunrise at the moment.
The idea is to bring astronomy to life for the children and give them a better understanding of the universe.
