UV DETECTION BEADS
   

These plastic beads contain a chemical which changes colour when exposed to UV radiation. The colours that develop depend on the wavelength of the UV radiation. Take them away from the UV radiation and they revert back to their opaque colour. These beads can be used over and over again. It's a great and easy way to make sure kids stay sun smart.

PlanisphereSOUTHERN HEMISPHERE PLANISPHERE
(STAR FINDER)

Every sky watcher needs an easy-to-use planisphere to quickly tell which stars and constellations are above their horizon on any day and time of the year.

To use the planisphere simply turn the dial to match the date with the time. The planisphere will then show the stars, constellations, and prominent deep-sky objects that are currently above the horizon as well as the location of the Milky Way. It works for any hour, of any month, of any year!

Make and model may differ from one pictured.
