Stargazing From Home With Kids: Beginner’s Guide

By Evan Dunn 
 
There’s no time like the present to introduce your child to the fun of gazing up at the stars. It’s a great family activity and it doesn’t take a lot of effort, expertise, or money to accomplish. You can ignite in your child a lifelong love of astronomy and science and give them a new way of looking at the universe and our place in it. Who knows, your child may become a future International Space Station astronaut!
 
Why stargaze?
 

The annual Leonid meteor shower is coming up!

The Leonid meteor shower will light up the night sky this month and put on a socially distant spectacle for everyone to enjoy. The meteors will peak after midnight into the early hours of Tuesday, November 17, right before dawn. This year, the Lyrid meteor shower will be just a couple of days after the new moon, giving you plenty of chances to see these celestial streakers with no lunar interference.
