    I don;t really have a favorite planet so much as I am amazed by Nebulas! [​IMG] I could look at pictures of them all day! I watched a show recently... but I couldn;t tell you what it was called because I caught it halfway through... but it was about black holes, galaxies, matter... it was really intriguing. They were talking about cannibalistic galaxies and dark matter. It was really neat.

    Sometimes local stargazers have nights when the public can come out and use their telescopes. A lot of times it's based on comets or times when planets are close to us. Check with local museums, they usually have a line in to these people. My mom used to take me when I was young... very cool [​IMG]
