Jun 1, 2022 thru Aug 31, 2022 - Various Times

Morehead Planetarium and Science Center created Earth, Moon & Sun to help children explore the relationship between our home planet and its most familiar neighbors. Children are helped in their exploration by Coyote, a character adapted from Native American oral traditions. Native American stories woven throughout the show illustrate how we have long sought to understand our planet and the skies above us. In this show, Coyote proves to be an amusing guide because he has so many misconceptions about space. Coyote's confusion brings scientific facts to light and helps students think about how Earth, Moon, and Sun work together as a system. Students learn why the Sun rises and sets and the basics of fusion and solar energy. They examine the Moon's orbit, craters, phases, and eclipses. The show also describes past and future space travel to our Moon and beyond. Admission fees apply. For showtimes, download the full Planetarium schedule here.
