For this year's Youth Mental Health Day (19th September) and World Mental Health Day (10th October), we've put together some of our activities that can be used to help promote good mental and physical health.
Download and display our monthly astronomy calendars at home or in your classroom!
Our calendars help you plan your stargazing activities. We have included things you can see with just your eyes or through binoculars (or via the internet in the case of rocket launches or most eclipses).
Use our Stargazing Glossary to expand your astronomical vocabulary as you use the calendars.
The horizon around the UK at 8 AM. Each image shows half the sky. These images are updated each day. Look at them over a few days to see how things change.
Use the images to plan your stargazing. Choose a direction you want to look in (for example, west) and look at the image of the night sky. When you are stargazing, look in the same direction and try to find some of the same star patterns in the sky. You could also look for a planet! Remember to look up at the sky, as well as near to the horizon.
