Star Light, Star Bright
Exploring Our Solar System
From the Series Imagine That!
Have you ever laid on the ground at night looking up at the twinkling stars? Those stars are the millions of planets, moons, suns and space dust that make up the Milky Way Galaxy. Our Solar System lives in this galaxy and we are viewing Earth’s neighbors when we look at the night sky. Sometimes you might see a shooting star streak across the sky. This is usually a meteoroid, small rock or ice that enters the Earth’s atmosphere and burns up. Imagine what it must be like to zip through space and look back to Earth where kids around the globe are gazing into the night sky. Includes the most up-to-date findings from the New Horizons satellite.
