All Day: Astronomy for Children
Astronomy For Children
July 10
8:30- 3:00

New Yorkers' interest in the planets and the stars was astronomical in the 1820s!  Today's young New Yorkers are invited to reach for the stars in the same way 19th century New Yorkers did, with this special look at astronomy of the past and today.   Children  9-12 will be tracing early 19th-century maps of the stars, making a solar system model based on a 19th century Orrery, painting  images of the planets  and planetary surfaces,  and testing  their knowledge of these travelers in the sky.  Learn about the man who was the first to use a telescope to discover a new planet.  Explore names  of the planets 200 years ago, and follow the discoveries of new planets by  scientists and astronomers today.
