The 5th graders from came to the planetarium today to participate in the program, Cosmic Colors. The students learned all about the electromagnetic spectrum and the reasons we see a blue sky in the day and different colors of stars at night. They also were able to discern the colors of a mystery cloth as seen under the light of different colored stars based on how that cloth reflected and refracted that light Here are a few photos from their visit.
