Centereach High School planetarium

Did you know that Centereach High School has an awesome planetarium? It does and we are lucky that we get to go there on field trips. We can learn about the solar system and different things that are in it. That's pretty cool because we go to the planetarium when we are learning about the solar system and that helps us understand our universe.

The room gets dark and you look up and see so many stars. You can see planets too. We learned that the sun is a star.

In the middle of the room is a machine that projects everything onto the ceiling. The director of the planetarium points everything out with a laser. He points out different stars and constellations. Sometimes during the show, you feel like you are floating.
