Yet another field trip! A few weeks ago we drove to the Delta College Planetarium in Bay City, Michigan. With a group of other homeschooling families, we attended a program entitled The Christmas Star.
Was there really a “Star of Bethlehem?” Can it be explained by a natural occurrence like a comet or exploding star, or do we still not know the truth 2000 years later?
What a pleasant surprise to experience a planetarium show which recognized the Lord! In case you might have a chance to visit this show in the future, I won’t spoil it. You must visit the planetarium if you want to learn more about the Christmas star. Or, you could ask Circuit and Button. They might tell you:)
Photography was not allowed during the presentation, but I quickly snapped these as the lights were dimming. Our children were attentive through the whole program. My only complaint was a nasty strobe light in the dome entryway that gave me a doozy of a headache. [I truly thank God for the person who formulated Aleve tablets and helped me to recover from said strobe-light-headache.]
The planetarium conference room ceiling featured this vibrant flag display. The flags represent nations that have participated in space exploration.
Afterward, we couldn’t resist driving over to Lake Huron. I referred to our handy-dandy atlas and just drove east. The best I could do on our impromptu whim was this view between two lakeshore homes. Interesting to see, but I much prefer the Great Lakes in summer!
