Stars & Planets

Interested in checking out your night sky? Kai Higgins loved to stare at the stars and planets, and you can do so too! The night sky is different for everyone everywhere. Where do you live–Maine, Virginia, or Texas? How about London or Sydney? And what month of the year is it? That will change the sky, as well. The internet is full of great resources to learn about your sky. Here is a link to Skymaps that can get you started.
