A star chart is a map that shows objects
in the sky.
If you are lost in space, you can use a star chart to show you where you need to go.

Why do you use a camera?
You use a camera to capture an
image in the night sky.
Why do people use binoculars?
They use them like a telescope, but for two eyes instead of one. They can zoom in just like they can with a telescope.
A small telescope is about four inches in diameter.
It is perfect for looking at the stars from your backyard.
Large telescopes can be over eight feet in diameter and are usually set up in a permanant location because they are hard to transport and set up.
