Coyote has a razor-sharp wit, but he’s a little confused about what he sees in the sky. Join this amusing character (adapted from American Indian oral traditions) in a fast-paced and fun fulldome show that explores lunar phases, eclipses and other puzzles. Engaging and immersive, Earth, Moon & Sun also examines how humans learn through space exploration. Audiences age 5–11. Produced by UNC Morehead Planetarium and Science Center, sponsored by The Dow Chemical Company – Texas Division.

Narrated by Academy Award winning actor Geoffrey Rush and presenting the latest scientific information, this new planetarium show brings to life all that is fascinating and extreme in the world of black holes. Witness what would happen if you got too close to one and see how a black hole is able to warp time and space. No longer the stuff of science fiction, the discovery of the black hole has been a triumph of modern science, an incredible journey from imagination to reality. Produced by Melbourne Planetarium, Scienceworks Museum, Museum Victoria.
