The show, developed especially for younger viewers, focuses on the difference between day and night, the motion of the sun and moon, and the patterns of stars in the night sky.
Duration: Approximately 20 minutes
The state-of-the-art Morrison Planetarium uses the latest scientific data and visualization techniques to observe the sky. The Planetarium is pleased to offer exclusive 10:30 am shows exclusively for student groups. These school shows are unique in that they are presented live by Planetarium staff.
This presentation will touch on the following topics:
- Difference between day and night
- Motion of the sun and moon in the sky
- Changing appearance of the moon
- Patterns of stars in the night sky
You may even sing a song during the show!
Sun, Moon, and Stars (Grades K-2) is scheduled on most Mondays and Fridays throughout the school year, starting at 10:30 am sharp.
A total of 230 seats are available in each presentation, and seats are booked on a first-come, first-served basis as field trip applications roll in.
The wisest of all field trip organizers use these Planetarium schedules to select visit dates that overlap with their favorite Planetarium show, and they make sure to request those visit dates and that show title on their field trip application!
