Asby Endowed School

Planetarium Visit

The whole school visited Kirkby Stephen Grammar School today as the Friends of the Lake District were celebrating that the Westmorland Dales area is a Dark Skies area. We were being encouraged to look at the wonderful night skies we get in this area as we do not have light pollution.


Richard took us on a journey around our solar system and told us lots of amazing facts about the other planets. Did you know that if you went to Venus the weight of the air would crush you?


Then we were shown how to spot some of the main star constellations that we can see from our own homes.
