Sky Puppies!

Engage Youth!
Do you have people in your life age 10 and under who you would love to introduce to astronomy, to start their voyage into the Universe? He or she could be a child, grandchild, or a neighbor. If so, then the Astronomical League has an Observing Program that is just what you need, Sky Puppy. This program explores the night sky at an introductory level, introducing concepts and objects to help young astronomers understand what they are seeing and to find their way among the stars. The Observing Program has a list of activities for the youth to accomplish, as well as useful information and stories. Thanks to a partnership with NASA, these workbook  guides, certificates, and pins are available at no cost to members of the Astronomical League, as well as to non-members. This Observing Program is great for one-on-one experiences, but has also been used in class settings. If you would like more information on the Sky Puppy Observing Program, visit its website:
