Earth and Space Science

In Moons of the Solar System, students watch and record the behavior of Jupiter’s four moons, and take a tour of some of the dozens of moons in our Solar System. In our Planetarium they will observe our own ever-changing Moon and find out what causes its phases through simulated motions of it and Earth in the light of a simulated Sun.
