Mississauga School Trustee Supports Planetarium Project

Who isn't fascinated by the stars in the sky, the possibility of life on other planets, the excitement of imagining yourself discovering the world of space?

Earthshine Astronomy and Space Science Organization is asking for your support, small or large, to help buy a Planetarium for Mississauga. How cool would that be?

Thanks to Earthshine and with the help of your donation, we all may be able to enjoy, explore, study and learn the exciting world of Space. 

This not for profit organization will issue tax receipts for donations made to this extraordinary project. 

Earthshine presents information sessions at Mississauga libraries now, and  plans on providing astronomy and space science programs for Peel families and student groups. 

From the Planetarium, Earthshine volunteers and staff will be able to show the sky from anywhere at any time, but will also be able to take the audience on virtual trips through the solar system and out amongst the stars!

Students and teachers will be able to learn about the universe in a real way as they watch programs tailored to meet the provincial curriculum. This exciting facility will be open to families as well - what a great week-end adventure. 

Please donate what you can @: http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/what-s-that-star-called-a-planetarium-for-the-western-gta/x/4711087
