Last Tuesday, we went to the Tessman Planetarium at Santa Ana College.
Parking was hard to find at the college, so we parked in a nearby shopping center. We arrived 15 minutes before anyone else!! When they did finally arrive, the show started.
The group walked into a domed room that housed the show which was called How Rare is the Earth? It started off simply enough and showed where the planets would be 10/5/2016. We learned about the planets and if there could be life on them. We skipped Earth.
Some of the things we learned were:
- Some of Jupiter and Saturn’s moons might have life.
- Buzz Lightyear has gone into space and boarded the International Space Station but didn’t quite explore as far as he wanted. He was confined to the ISS.
- There is a nebula that looks like the face of a witch.
At one funny moment, the music made it sound like we were at a beach party. The presentation was perfect except for when he put on the wrong music, but I wasn’t mad. It could have been a prank for all I know. Afterwards, we took group picture with Dr. Eastman. I loved it and we went to Disneyland after that!
