Earth, Sun and Moon

September 21, 2019 @ 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. Produced by UNC Morehead Planetarium and Science Center.

The Robinson Planetarium is located at the eastern end of Peelle Hall on the corner of Charles
and Williams streets on the Adrian College campus.
