Sun, Moon and Stars

Sun, Moon and Stars

Observe the sun's daily path across the sky and predict sunset. Look at simple sketches of key constellations, then find and point to them in the sky (inferring). Classify bright and faint stars; note shapes of prominent constellations; count their brightest stars. Discover how planets change positions from year to year, but constellations do not (identifying variables). On an imaginary trip to the moon, compare and contrast daytime on the moon with daytime on Earth.


Strasenburgh Planetarium is currently closed for renovations, but new and exciting shows are coming soon! Call now to reserve show times in 2019.
