Kids in Duluth got to experience a mini-planetarium on Monday.

It was "Space Night" at Myers-Wilkins Elementary School. The University of Minnesota's Bell Museum of Natural History brought in a giant Exploradome, where third-graders could travel virtually to the edge of the universe.

Kids used iPads to do some online space exploration before they took their turn in the dome, where stars and planets were brought to life.

It was the first of three family nights scheduled for March. The other two are Science Night on March 6 and Math Night on March 13. All of them run from 5:15 to 7 p.m.
