Versant Power Astronomy Center-Earth, Moon, & Sun

July 30 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Earth, Moon, & Sun is a fast-paced, full dome demonstration of lunar phases, eclipses, day and night, the sun and other puzzling events with the help of a confused coyote. This program beautifully illustrates basic concepts like moon phases and seasons. Based on the trickster of Native American lore, Coyote is constantly corrected in his misunderstandings of how things work. A live tour of the Maine sky and its beautiful constellations completes this micro-unit of astronomy. Program includes a tour of Maine’s wonderous night skies!
