Looking for a great virtual or live show that’s fun and yet covers your astronomy curriculum? This is it! Whether it’s streamed or live, this astronomy show will delight your students and cover your NY State astronomy curriculum. It’s presented by science teacher Lee Ognibene, retired director of the Sayville Planetarium and 1998 Suffolk County Science Teacher of the Year. Length: 50 minutes. Perfect for grades K-6.

Experience jaw-dropping hi-definition video space scenes with awesome sound effects, music, and live commentary as we tour the solar system, Milky Way Galaxy, the moon, the International Space Station, Meteor Crater in Arizona, Cape Canaveral in Florida, an observatory, and a solar eclipse in Hawaii. We will also travel to Italy and the moon to try Galileo’s gravity experiment. You’ll see me in the video reporting live from these places like a news reporter.

Your students will also learn about motions of the earth and moon, what causes day and night, what causes the phases of the moon, orbital mechanics, weightlessness, eclipses, telescopes, the solar system, comets, meteors, the sun, our moon, how craters form, galaxies, how big space is, the birth and death of stars, gravity, how rockets work, and our place in space. There’s even a follow-up art project where your kids can make a beautiful chalk drawing of a total solar eclipse. They love it! Many live interactive demonstrations and experiments round out the experience. It’s edutainment at its best! There’s even lots of humor in the show and after each show, I always hear the kids and teachers say, “That was awesome!” The finale will take your breath away! Expect rave reviews!
