Earth, Sun and Moon
October 19 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
This fulldome show explores the relationship between the Earth, Moon and Sun with the help of Coyote, an amusing character adapted from Native American oral traditions who has many misconceptions about the Earth and its most familiar neighbors. His confusion about the universe makes viewers think about how the 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 the Moon’s orbit, craters, phases and eclipses. The show explores past and future space travel to the Moon and beyond.
The Robinson Planetarium is located at the east end of Peelle Hall on the corner of Charles and Williams streets on the Adrian College campus.
