Description

Moon viewing holds a lot of fascination for children from an early age.  You can view surface features on the Moon, without much help.  Our Lunar Viewer for the Southern Hemisphere, has 8 images of different views, as the moon works through it’s lunar cycle of 28 days.

Is the moon a planet?  No, it is a satellite object.  Billions of years ago, the Earth collided with another planet-like body.  It left debris to form the moon.  To classify an object in the solar system, as a planet; it must fulfill a minimum of three requirements;

  • it must orbit the sun
  • must have sufficient mass
  • requires sufficient gravitational force

Our moon does not fulfill these requirements…(read more…)

The Lunar Viewer – Southern Hemisphere:

  • a square, ply-wood paddle, with a cut-out in the centre and a handle
  • 8 labeled images of different phases of the moon surround the cut-out
  • the Child holds the cut-out portion of the paddle, to view the moon
  • then match the real moon to one of the images on the viewer, to identify the phase of the moon.

Children must use this viewer under supervision.  Teach them not to use this product to look at the sun.  Looking directly at the sun will damage their sight.

What looks much like craggy mountains on a moonlit evening is actually the edge of a nearby, young, star-forming region NGC 3324 in the Carina Nebula. Captured in infrared light by the Near-Infrared Camera (NIRCam) on NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope, this image reveals previously obscured areas of star birth.
