    Thank you soooo much for offering such a wonderful resource for us new Star Gazers! Its a bit overwhelming when you seriously began to explore what you have seen all your life. We just purchased a telescope for our daughter and have been looking for hands on activities for her besides books. Thank you for the swell free printables, especially the diary ( my daughter loves to draw 🙂 Your creative resources as well as commitment to involving and sharing with families is truly appreciated. We’re looking forward to spending lots of time on your website learning all we can about the Heavens~

    Thank you for the printables – this will be so helpful! When I followed the link for the Winter Sky Map for Kids, it pulled up the same map as the Spring Sky Map (labeled Spring Night Sky). Are they meant to be the same? Do you have a Winter Sky Map for Kids that is someplace else? I don’t mean to sound picky, it’s just that you have provided such a great resource and I’d like to be able to use this when teaching. Thanks!

    Hi there. Thank you so much for sharing this. I am a Brownie leader in South Africa. We will use these ideas to do the Star Gazer badge. Do you know where I can get sky maps like yours for the Southern Hemisphere?
