The Astronomy class took an exciting field trip on Aug. 30 to the Saint Louis Science Center to see the planetarium exhibit. The long ride was met by the exciting sights and educational opportunity it exhibited. It was entertaining and fun, nevertheless.

As the class first got to the center, they went through an exhibit of the moon landing. There they were greeted with actual remnants of the Apollo 11 mission. In the middle of the exhibit, there was the spaceship from the mission that made it back to earth. Next to the shuttle, there was the helmet, gloves, and sample container all used by Buzz Aldrin (an astronaut from the Apollo 11 mission) himself. Perhaps, though, the most amazing part of the exhibit, was the rock on display; that isn’t just any normal rock, but a rock collected from the moon.

While the group continued, they were met with a room where there was a recreation of the spacecraft where visitors could climb inside and see what it was like to be in the actual ship. In the same room, there were multiple things to do and small games that they could play. Some of the games were trying to land on the moon, launching a small spaceship, and even just picking up small rocks with the tools similar to what the original astronauts would have used.

After given time to look around, the main event of the day started. They were taken to what they call a planetarium. There, they laid on mats and looked at the ceiling, which turned into a stellar night sky. They were shown the constellations and where to look, where one can find each planet, and even other galaxies, which was a breathtaking look into space.

The astronomy field trip was an educational journey through the great unknown. Students learned and saw things that they will take with them through the rest of their lives, and to help them this upcoming semester in their astronomy class.

Mrs. Kish teaches the class. Students who attended the field trip were Berrimand Breeden, Emma Draves, Brooke Frazer, Tristin Hobeck, Eric Linton, Kira McGhee, Chloe Page-Keim, Allexiyah Price, Allison Rowold, Elizabeth Soellner, Mallary Vasquez and Cortnie Winkler.
