The mission of Look Up to the Stars is to generate interest and foster scientific literacy in the general public nationwide through the delivery of awe-inspiring, educational and entertaining astronomy camps, classes and programs. Children of all ages can be inspired to think big, dream big, and to foster curiosity about an enormous universe in which the boundaries appear unlimited. With the understanding of some simple terminology and concepts, the general public is better informed about space and the celestial objects that reside overhead. The spark of interest often ignites in young minds where the abc's of the universe are brought to light.

Join forces with international award-winning astronomer and consultant to NASA, Kevin Manning, a man on no ordinary mission.  Kevin founded Look Up to the Stars with a mission to generate interest and foster scientific literacy in the general public nationwide through the delivery of awe-inspiring, educational and entertaining astronomy programs.  Truly awesome and unforgettable astronomy programs and classes that are literally out of this world.  Many fun and exciting STEM hands-on activities are done in many of them.  As we begin our exciting virtual cosmic journey using Zoom, you will need a computer with a strong Internet connection.  It can be a desktop, laptop, or a tablet.  A smart cell phone can be used but the screen size may be disappointing to see all the incredible images and video clips I'll be sharing.

Truly awesome, unforgettable astronomy classes that are literally out of this world. Many fun, exciting STEM hands-on activities are done in each 45 min class. Our Virtual Astronomy & Space Academy has dozens of different topics about the universe.

101 Fun Facts on Astronomy
PUBLISHED

I want to give you a gift - a free eBook I wrote called 101 Fun Facts on Astronomy.  Astronomy is the most exciting and fun topic in the universe. Of course, I am a bit biased, but don't you agree? Using a telescope to see the invisible and look far back in time, exploring the universe to learn about meteors, the Moon, comets, asteroids, star clusters, nebulae and galaxies, and trying to understand the role of black holes, dark matter, and dark energy, are all covered in this enjoyable text.
