My son gets really excited about seeing the stars at night. But since we're in a relatively urban area with lots of light pollution we don't get to see to many of them at night. About 2 or 3 from his room, that is. So I decided that what he could use is a starry mobile that glows in the dark to hang in his room. So even on overcast nights there will still be a few stars to look at.
