Astronomy

Wondering how the night sky changes with the seasons? As the days get shorter, the position of the stars shift and some constellations might not be seen until other times of the day. In honor of Red Planet Day (or Mars), below is a small selection of astronomy resources (besides the books of course) to get us all looking at the stars more.  Of course you can also listen the The Planets, by Gustav Holst. Check out Mars, the Bringer of War (short sample) from The Planets. It is amazing.
