December: Light Bright

Is the dark getting you down? With a DIY light and an escape to a sunny spot, we’ll help you brighten up.


Eye Party

Is that a UFO or just a trick of the light? Admire a blowtorch through diffraction glasses. Learn how we see light and what that means for looking at the night sky.
