Summer Fun on the Moon

Hey friends of Janet’s Planet! Hope everyone is having a wonderful summer! What adventures are you experiencing while the weather is hot? One Janet’s Planet viewer named Ella submitted this picture of her summer vacation that was out of this world!


If you thought Ella’s summer vacation was to the moon, you’re almost right! She actually visited the U.S. Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville, Alabama. Have any of you space cadets ever been there? Since it might hard for most of us to actually travel to the moon, visiting museums is a great way to bring space to Earth. There are so many fun museums to visit all over the country. If you’ve never been to one, ask your parent or guardian if it might be possible to go! Or maybe your school has a field trip planned for this year…oh wait, we said school! Sorry, folks…go back to enjoying summer. School will be here soon enough!
