Earth, Moon & Sun

This Planetarium show explores the relationship between Earth, Moon, and the 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.
