Lost in space

Although technically,  I was lost in photos of space but I needed a catchy title for this post.

Over the weekend, I needed a picture of the moon.

So, I did what anyone with a camera would do.  I went outside with mine and pointed it up.  If I was looking for a picture of a cloudy sky, I would have been in luck.

I turned to the next best thing … the internet and started poking around and found a goldmine.

It’s from NASA and they’ve published an amazing collection of images.  I quickly determined that I wasn’t limited in my thinking of Earth’s moon.  Here, there are moons everywhere!

And that’s just the beginning.

As I was off.

I even found a whole resource to add to my Pi Stuff Flipboard collection for March.

Set aside a block of time for yourself and enjoy things at https://www.pinterest.ca/nasa/.

The content of this blog is created by me at the keyboard or as a result of an aggregator of my daily reading under the title OTR Links. On Fridays, look for my signature post "This Week in Ontario Edublogs" where I try to share some great writing from Ontario Educators. The other regular post appears Sunday mornings as I try to start a conversation about things that have gone missing from our daily lives.

  1. Doug, I know a lot of Kindergarten educators that explore space with their class. Space is also a Science topic in Grade 6. This resource looks like it might be a wonderful one for both grades, and would stimulate a lot of conversation. Thanks Doug!
