Earth and Space Science

In our Planetarium, students observe the changing Moon and find out what causes its phases, by acting out the motions of Earth and its Moon in the light of a simulated Sun. They monitor and record the behavior of Jupiter’s four moons, and take a tour of some of the dozens of moons in our Solar System.
