Through Labor Day, Providence Children's Museum hosts My Sky, a new traveling exhibit that invites families to look up and be inspired by the wonders of the universe:

• Gaze through a telescope to see stars and planets in their real-time positions in the sky.

• Examine real footage of the sun - see solar flares, eclipses and more.

• Explore the phases of the moon.

• Find familiar constellations and invent new ones.

• Discover the twinkling night sky in a large darkened dome.

• Watch the sun setting and the moon rising, and find planets, constellations and more in a 24-hour time lapse of the sky.

• And more!

Inspired by the exhibit, families may also try activities exploring the daytime and night sky in Discovery Studio, the Museum's hands-on art and science exploration space. Design constellations, create asteroids, make a sundial and solar warmer, and more. Exhibit and activities are free with Museum admission.

Don't miss it! Visit the Museum's website to learn more about My Sky, and for a full calendar of activities.

My Sky was produced by Boston Children's Museum in collaboration with Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory and NASA; sponsored in Providence by June Rockwell Levy Foundation.
