Parallax Paradox

We know that stars in the night sky are really far away, but not all stars are the same distance from Earth. Use objects in your home to explore how astronomers use the seasonal differences in the night sky to understand how far away stars really are.

Parallax Paradox was part of our Week 2 Theme: Backyard Astronomy. What other projects from this theme did you participate in?
