Galaxy Glow in the Dark Stars Great Aid For Teaching Children Astronomy with Weekly Sky Events!

 

Galaxy Glow Stars is a new toy company founded in 2016 by a husband and wife duo. They both loved the simple vintage glow in the dark stars they enjoyed as children but wanted to add a little bit of astronomy to the mix. They added a visually stimulating constellation guide that is an excellent way to introduce astronomy and science to kids of all ages. Parents can use weekly sky events along with their glow in the dark stars as learning activities for the Summer break!

 

Sky events this week:

Thursday, June 29

Magnificent Saturn reached its peak just two weeks ago, when it appeared opposite the Sun in the sky, and our view of the ringed planet remains spectacular. It is on display nearly all night among the background stars of southern Ophiuchus, hanging in the southeastern sky as darkness falls and climbing high in the south by midnight local daylight time. Saturn continues to shine brightly, too, at magnitude 0.1. When viewed through a telescope, the dramatic ring system spans 42" and tilts 27° to our line of sight, while the planet’s family of moderately bright moons appears next to the gorgeous world.

Friday, June 30

First Quarter Moon arrives at 8:51 p.m. EDT. You can find the half-lit orb in the southwestern sky as darkness falls and then watch it sink toward the western horizon throughout the evening hours. It sets around 1 a.m. local daylight time. The Moon lies in central Virgo, just a few degrees to the right of brilliant Jupiter.

Saturday, July 1

Tonight affords viewers a nice opportunity to track down Pluto. The distant world passes just 4' due north of the 8th-magnitude star SAO 187934 in northeastern Sagittarius, making the task of finding the dwarf planet much easier than usual. (This star, in turn, lies 2° east-southeast of 3rd-magnitude Pi [p] Sagittarii.) Pluto glows dimly at 14th magnitude, so you’ll need an 8-inch or larger telescope to spot it visually. See “In pursuit of Pluto” in the July Astronomy for complete details on finding this world.

Sunday, July 2

Although Venus reached its greatest elongation from the Sun a month ago, it now rises earlier and climbs higher in the east before dawn. It rises at 3 a.m. local daylight time and stands 18° above the horizon an hour before sunrise. It’s hard to mistake the inner planet for anything else — at magnitude –4.2, it shines brighter than any other point of light in the sky. When viewed through a telescope, Venus shows a 18"-diameter disk that appears 63 percent lit.
