Cody Coyote’s Adventure: Earth, Moon and Sun Planetarium Show

August 11 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

$5.00

Why do the Sun, Moon, and stars seem to move across the sky? Why are different evening star patterns visible at different times of the year? Why does the Moon seem to change shape from time to time? This entertaining and educational show explores the relationship between Earth, Moon and Sun with the help of Cody 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. Native American stories are used throughout the show to help distinguish between myths and science. Learn why the sun rises and sets and the basics of fusion and solar energy. Examine Moon’s orbit, craters, phases and eclipses. Also, the show explores past and future space travel to our moon and beyond.

Tickets go on sale one hour before showtime.

$7/Adult; $5/Seniors, Kids, Delta Students, Mil.
