Travel Journal, Day 4 (Part II): The Pacific Science Center (CityPASS)

June 4, 2019

Originally, I really wanted to go to the Chihuly Garden & Glass. But when I asked my family, which place we want to visit next, I’ve got outvoted. The Seattle CityPASS gives a choice: the Chihuly Garden & Glass or the Pacific Science Center. I had to agree, that the Science Center would be much more fun for the girls. What we didn’t know, the Seattle schools are not on Summer Break, yet. A lot of Elementary Schools use the warmer days for Field Trips. As soon as we entered the Courtyard, we heard a whole bunch of kids. We looked back. And sure enough, there was a “herd” of 1st, 2nd and 3rd graders entering the gates. I said: “Oh boy, this might be a short stay here in the Science Center! RUUUNNN!”

Entering the Building, Katelynn and Sara had so much fun touching, playing, exercising, etc. We didn’t go through the whole place. But the girls enjoyed running around in the buildings for over two hours, before we went to lunch. That got the excessive energy out of their system and made them hungry.

Luna And The Gas Giant (2)

This morning, the Moon and Jupiter “shined” bright in the sky. After I dropped off Sara at school, I took my camera and captured our natural Earth Satellite and the big Gas Giant in our frontyard.

Luna & The Planets

Since last weekend, I keep an eye on the Moon, Mars and Jupiter. Last Sunday, the two planets almost “touched” each other, they were so close from our view on Earth. The view distance was less than half of the Moon diameter.Β  This morning, the Moon was in a perfect position to capture a photo of all three celestial objects.

I always shrink my pictures to a medium size. Therefore you really can’t see Mars in this photo. For a better photo view, you might like to check out my link on Flickr: https://www.flickr.com/photos/132943299@N07/38735737935/in/album-72157686994312444/
