The Sky: A Film Lesson in “Nature Study” (1928)

Although it begins with a blinding sun winking through the clouds, this short educational film is focused on what can be seen in the night sky, including a look at constellations, using a telescope, the mountains of the moon (including some wonderful graphics), the planets, and ending on a closer look at the sun with which we began. Part of a series — of which we’ve also featured the great “Growing Things” instalment here.
