Earth, Moon & Sun

(grade 2/3 and older; 25 minutes)

This planetarium show explores the relationship between Earth, Moon and Sun with the help of Coyote, an amusing character adapted from Native American oral traditions. Coyote has many misconceptions about our home planet and its most familiar neighbors. His confusion about the universe makes viewers think about how Earth, Moon and Sun work together as a system and learn to distinguish between myths and science.

Narrated by Tim Allen, the show highlights the history and future of lunar exploration, particularly the efforts of teams competing in the $30 million Google Lunar X Prize.

(grade 3 and up; 25 minutes)

This program is about eclipses, lunar and solar - why they happen and what happens when they do.  Great topic to go  along with programs related to the 2017 and 2024 solar eclipses passing through the United States.  Can include a live night-sky tour.
