Apologia Astronomy Supplements: Netflix Movies

Disclosure: This post may contain affiliate links. Read my full disclosure statement.

We started Apologia’s Exploring Creation with Astronomy yesterday.  We don’t “officially” start our school year until Monday, but Jonathan and I were so excited about our science that we just couldn’t wait any longer.  We had so much fun learning about what the universe is, why the planets are important to Earth, and that ancient people used stars and constellations to tell time as well as direction.

We don’t have cable at our house (and haven’t for several years), so we love our subscription to Netflix.  Since we are big movie watchers, including documentaries, we love to find movies to go along with what we’re learning in school.  We like to watch movies at lunch time and/or for afternoon quiet time.

{Disclaimer: I have not watched all of these yet and am not responsible for their content.  Use your discretion and watch with your children.  I personally have tried to avoid any that are overly non-creationist in their viewpoint or am careful to explain things from a biblical point of view as we watch together.}

We started watching this BBC series yesterday and found it fascinating:

The Planets

Here are a few others that I found that also look interesting.  Just click on the pictures to be taken to Netflix.


I’ll be sharing supplements for Astronomy through out the year.  Come explore the universe with us!

Have you found any good movies or documentaries to go with your study of Astronomy?  Leave a comment and share them with us.

    This is a great list! My daughter and I will be finishing astronomy and starting zoo1, but I want to watch at least the Mars and telescope movies. Love Netflix for the documentaries! Thanks for putting this list together.
