What are you waiting for? Summer is almost here and your teens are going to be out of school. They don’t know what to do? How about hunt for planets, stars, nebulae and galaxies? Simply by looking at actual pictures of space taken by the Galactic Legacy Infrared Mid-Plane Survey Extraordinaire (GLIMPSE) and the Multiband Imaging Photometer for Spitzer Galactic Plane Survey (MIPSGAL) and flag interesting characteristics with a bubble! It’s simple and fun.
