DULUTH - Northlanders participated in space activities on Saturday as part of International Astronomy Day.
The University of Minnesota-Duluth (UMD), along with the Duluth Children’s Museum, hosted shows and programs all day exploring the theme “Colonizing the Solar System” at the UMD campus.
Kids and their parents participated in full-dome shows at the planetarium, hands on arts and crafts, and learned about humans and space travel.
“"Everyone seems to have an interest in space,” said Howard Mooers, Planetarium Director. “And so, this is an opportunity to educate people about science in general by looking at something and doing something that they're fascinated with."
All the days’ events were free.
