Earth, Moon, and Sun – Maine Discovery Museum Joint Ticket

February 15, 2016 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

| $6

EarthMoonandSun-poster-smallEarth, 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.

This program is offered as a joint ticket with the Maine Discovery Museum. By presenting an admission ticket from the Discovery Museum, visitors to the Astronomy Center will receive $2.00 off the normal door price of $6.00. Likewise, the Discovery Museum will be offering a $2.00 discount to anyone presenting a planetarium admission ticket. Visit the Maine Discovery Museum‘s website for more information on their programs
