Lucie welcomes all Young Stargazers!

Welcome to the special section of the SPA website for younger members! It is a zone headed by Chief Stargazer Lucie Green, who is well known to everyone as a presenter of TV's The Sky At Night.

Lucie says: “I first became interested in looking at the night sky when I did some nature walks at the age of 12 or 13. For me, astronomy is about sharing your enthusiasm, so I'm very excited to become the SPA’s Chief Stargazer!”

On these pages you'll find masses of interesting information about astronomy and space travel.

But it's not just kids' stuff. There are some challenging projects which have featured in earlier issues of Popular Astronomy for you to tackle, a collection of space videos for you to watch, descriptions of all the planets, details of past, current and forthcoming space exploration missions, Fab Facts and plenty more.

We want this to be the best site for young astronomers on the web, so if there's anything you'd like to see please let us know.

Oh, it helps if you're a Young Stargazer yourself, so if you want to join up now, just click here. You get six copies of Popular Astronomy a year which contain special Young Stargazers pages, extra goodies and an exclusive Young Stargazers Pack.
