Earth, Moon and Sun: Showing Tuesdays through Fridays September 15 - 30 at 4:15 pm
Explore the relationship between the Earth, Moon and Sun with the help of Coyote, an amusing character adapted from Native American oral traditions who has many misconceptions about our home planet and its most familiar neighbors. His confusion about the universe makes viewers think about how the Earth, Moon and Sun work together as a system. Native American stories are used throughout the show to help distinguish between myths and science. Recommended for ages 7 and up; admission just $3 per person.
Voyage to Distant Worlds: Showing Saturdays September 19 & 26 at 7 pm
From the radical temperature differences of Mercury to the mysterious surfaces of the cloud-shrouded gas giants, our solar system is full of fascination. Take a tour of the local planets and discover new worlds in this program produced right here at the Casper Planetarium. Recommended for ages 10 and up. Admission just $3 per person
