Valentines Day isn’t just for chocolate.  Show the kids this astonomical eye candy  compiled by Phil Plait, creator and host of the Bad Astronomy website.   The pictures are fascinating, and Plait’s commentary is a great combination of informative and amusing. 


A National Science Teachers Association reviewer recommends Plait’s book for high school students, but his approachable prose will draw many curious middle schoolers into further exploration of the physical sciences and invite them to think critically about scientific myths, hoaxes, and legends.
