Our universe is truly an amazing thing and the vastness of space boggles the mind. Experience the truly awesome power of God through a glimpse into His vast creation. The Psalmist wrote, “When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars, which You have ordained, what is man that You are mindful of him, and the Son of man that You visit him?” Discover the wonders of the night sky as we take a tour through the universe. Learn to identify stars, constellations, and even planets. We will answer important questions about the stars, planets, and the place of Earth in this vast creation. Explore numerous evidences that point to a young universe: magnetic poles of planets, the spiral shape of galaxies, comets and how long scientists think they can last, and much more.
