Space Flight

We went on a cool inter planetary mission today courtesy of a quirky inflatable planetarium which came to town as part of the University Science Week.

I thought the show lasted for five to ten minutes and happily trooped in with Hermione and Miles. Towards the end Miles was starting to wriggle a little, (the children were lying on the floor for full effect), but when we came out I realised the show had lasted over thirty minutes! I think he did ever so well considering and we all learned lots, particularly about Saturn which was the main focus of the exploration.

We couldn't go so close to Durham Cathedral without calling in. It was nice to show Nana the new Transfiguration Window. I agree with the sentiments expressed in this clip that it is truly a wonderful piece of art.

We rounded our trip off with lunch at an Italian overlooking the river and it was perfect.
