On Wednesday team 3 visited the Stardome Observatory at Cornwall Park. We played in the park with our friends. We were excited to go to the Stardome. We went into the stardome and we went in inside the classroom. We were so excited to learn we learnt so much about how Venus is hotter than mercury because venus has 100000 blankets and 10 hats around it. That’s what make it hot. Then we went back into the bus we sang Step by Step all the way back to school.

If an object blocks sunlight the place behind the object is dark. This is called a shadow.
The size of the shadow depends on the angle at which the light is falling on the object. Your shadow keeps changing throughout the day. It is longest in the early morning and the late afternoon. At midday, when the sun is overhead there is little or no shadow at all.

The Moon was probably made 4.5 billion years ago when a large object hit the Earth and blasted out rocks that came together to orbit round the Earth. The Moon is much smaller than the Earth. It is airless, waterless and lifeless. The gravity of the Moon, causes two high tides on the Earth every day.
The first person to walk on the Moon was the American astronaut, Neil Armstrong. He stepped out of his space craft, the Eagle, on 21 July 1969 and said these famous words, “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind”.
