How do you combine #astronomy and #VeteransDay? You build a memorial that aligns to the sun on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month like the Anthem Memorial in Anthem AZ.

The Anthem Veterans Memorial is a monument located in Anthem, Arizona which was dedicated in 2011 to honor the sacrifice and service made by members of the United States Armed Forces.

Everything on Earth — including you — is made of matter that was formed in the core of dying stars. (via @exploreplanets) You are starstuff. Amazing to think that of all the pieces of matter in the universe, some little tiny bit of it came together to make you, or this flower.

It is called “The Evening Star” this time of year, yet in Spring it will be called “The Morning Star.” Either way, Venus is the brightest object in the night sky save the moon.

Hello! I am interested in taking my daughter to one of the shows but I need to know how long the shows are. She's 2 ¹/² years old. She's well behaved and I think she would love the show but I don't want to push it with anything more then an hour. Thank you.
