Welcome to this awesome zone of the SPA website that’s just for kids. We’ll show you stars and planets - and we’ll make it fun!
But it’s a big, big Universe out there. So to help us take care of everything, we’re recruiting. If you're aged 14 or under, then why not be a hero and join us?
We’ll provide you with the vital gear you need to be a Young Stargazer. You’ll get six copies of Popular Astronomy magazine a year which contain amazing Young Stargazers pages.
Then we’ll throw in all sorts of extra goodies, including an exclusive Young Stargazers Pack.
Plus these web pages will give you your own missions to tackle, as well as videos to watch, info about the planets and space probes and all sorts of fun facts.
Taking charge of the situation is our Chief Stargazer Lucie Green, who is well famous to the population as a presenter of BBC TV's The Sky At Night.
So if you’re not a member already, and you're 14 or under, click here to join the ranks of the Young Stargazers and prepare to be inducted into the wonders of space.
