On May 31, Canadian Astronaut Jeremy Hansen visited the Ontario Science Centre to help launch Eyes on the Skies, a new planetarium program for toddlers. It is a program that introduces and educates young children about the night-time sky in a positive, friendly manner through songs, connecting constellations and a journey to the moon. And since it is geared towards pre-school children aged 6 and under, I am hoping to take my kids there soon. I remember visiting a planetarium when I was a wee lass and marveled at the wonders of the universe. I'm sure my kids will, too. If we get a chance to go, I'll let you know how it is.
