Museum of Science
Skylab
The Boston Museum of Science brought Skylab for a Hopkinton Library Program at St. John Church Hall.
This is how it looked when the MOS arrived....


 
This is how it looked
3 minutes later!
Inside, we saw the constellations in the night sky and we learned how to spot them...how to find the North Star and even that J.K. Rowling used the names of constellations for some of her Harry Potter characters!  Check out the library telescope to explore the Night Sky later this spring!
