reach for the stars, little girls

we finally (just) made it to the stars tonight,
the free planetarium show at the air and space museum
that highlights celestial bodies in the current night sky.

afterward, we got another free treat to discovery theater‘s
the wright brother’s puppet production
dramatizing man’s first powered flight.

they were giving the show right in the middle of one of the great halls,
so we watched it outside of the velvet rope.
same view, better price.

before we left, we checked out the surrounding exhibits
on the history of the development of planes.

one of the things i love about our local museums
is that the exhibits can’t be exhausted in just one visit.
we’ll be back.
probably to take in the free big bird one world, one sky show on a friday morning.
you comin’?
