Space Image Camper's Canopy

Before you go out camping you will be able to prepare yourself for the sky that will be above you.  The seasonal sky will be shown so that you can figure out directions and locate various constellations.  You will also be shown how to tell time by the Sun and by the stars.

Under the night sky you will witness unusual sights such as a meteor shower, an exploding fireball and a comet. The changing positions of the planets and the phases of the moon will also be displayed. The dome of the sky should then be a more familiar coverning for your camping excursions.
