Neither my husband nor I are night sky experts, and this is why we find Star Walk app so handy. It is SO helpful to be able to identify objects of the night sky. It requires GPS to work, so you need to enable it if you usually keep it disabled for photo tagging reasons. There are many other apps in this category including Star Walk for Kids from the same company, but we find this one most helpful and certainly worth its $2.99 price.
NASA App is free and provides last minute updates on NASA missions. It sort of mirrors NASA website, but we found app version not as painfully slow as the main NASA website (they also have a special NASA for kids website)
Astronomy Picture of the Day
Also from NASA - Astronomy Picture of the Day site contains amazing images every day followed by a short explanation. Looking at these pictures can be very relaxing and helps put small problems of daily life in perspective.
Crash Course Astronomy
We are all big fans of Crash Course. Crash Course Astronomy takes viewers through the journey that starts with naked eye observations of the night sky all the way to galaxies and quasars. This course is perfect for older kids who really want to dig deeper into mysteries of space.
Are your kids interested in mysteries of space?
