Oh, My Stars!

Staples High School planetarium

This alien-looking bubble appeared suddenly on Staples’ 2nd floor yesterday.

Little green creatures did not crawl out.  Instead, students were invited to crawl in.  It turned out to be a portable planetarium, courtesy of the astronomy class.

Inside, slides projected planets, constellations and galaxies — natural phenomena modern light pollution makes impossible to see.  It was an impressive show.

At Staples, there’s always something new under the sun.
