Hands-On Solar System Activity:

What Is It? How Far Is It?

Many people confuse the terms Solar System, Galaxy, and Universe,
interchanging them almost willy nilly.
We challenge you to identify objects that are found
(a) "Nearby" within our solar system,
(b) "Far away" outside our solar system but still inside our Milky Way galaxy, and
(c) "Really far away" outside our Milky Way galaxy.
