Make Some 'Space' for a New Winter Activity
Yes, it’s true that we are beyond proud of our illustrious white sand and rare emerald water. It’s also true that visitors and locals get in the rut- albeit glorious rut- of spending all our free time on the beach or golf course (which is totally fine and definitely at the top of the recreational happiness pyramid). Once in a while however it’s nice to replace looking out over the shimmering Gulf with looking up to the sparkling stars. Which is why we’d like to spotlight the Emerald Coast Science Center located in Ft. Walton Beach, Florida.
At the Emerald Coast Science Center you will find a facility for children and families with touchable, workable exhibits that teach about natural phenomena and basic scientific principles. Come discover the difference a hands on encounter with science can make especially during the Planetarium Nights.
Scheduled for the first and third Thursday of each month, this state-of-the-art planetarium provides selected Hubble images of the most awesome universal vistas. Be immersed in the beauty that lies beyond our atmosphere and invokes our imaginations. The show lasts 45 minutes and discounts for seniors and children are offered. Visit http://www.ecscience.org/planetarium for more details and plan to be whisked away through virtual clouds to the immensity of space that surrounds our blue gem of a planet.
