The Stardome Observatory Trip
On Friday 5th November Room 3 and Room 9 visited the Auckland Stardome Observatory. We saw an amazing show called 'Secret of the Cardboard Rocket'. We discovered that the secret was using your imagination. It was so weird lying down in chairs staring up at the ceiling. We also learnt a lot about our solar system. We then went into a classroom and learnt about the Earth, Moon and Sun's movements. Lauryn was the Moon, Lucia-Belle was Earth and George was the Sun. They showed us how the Moon moves around the Earth and that the Earth moves around the Sun.
