May 7, 2011 — Two special events take place Sunday: One here on Earth, and the other up above.
Stargazers like Andrew Yee have a suggestion for what to do with mom this Mother's Day.
The astronomer says you should take her to a star party after sunset.
That's how many International Astronomy Week celebrations will end this Sunday.
This year, organizers hope the whole family comes out.
“This could be a neat way to celebrate Mother's Day,” says Yee.
He recommends trying sidewalk astronomy, “where you can look through a telescope to view the sun during the day, and planets and stars in the evening.”
You might even be able to see a family reunion in the night sky.
“Clear skies, happy astronomy day, and happy Mother's Day,” says Yee.
