A few weeks back Rich and I heard about an event that was happening at the Carter Observatory called Celestial Cinema - being fans of both cinema and space we decided to go along. Although there were quite a few technical difficulties on the evening we got to see some really cool films, they were screened inside the planetarium.
The movies were a mix of old time fantastic movies and real life information about space, including documentary footage of a Russia space walk in the 1960s. My favourite was a trip to the moon, which you can watch on you tube if you'd like to, but there is something magical about being able to watch it on the big screen inside a planetarium!
For the price of our movie ticket we also had the chance to explore the gallery at the observatory for free, I hadn't been here for years but the exhibits are really cool. We had about half an hour to look around, but I'd like to come back soon and take a better look.
Colette Peony , I've had this pattern for a while, but just haven't gotten around to making it. I've seen a lot of cute versions of this dress around the internet, so I thought I'd give it a work and this space fabric just seemed like it would work.
