Earth, Moon and Sun: Showing on Selected Weekday Afternoons in November
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. Shows at 4:15 pm on November 3 - 6, 12, 13, 19, 20, and 24.

Season of Light
Traces the history and development of many holiday customs which involve lighting up the winter season — from sparkling Christmas tree lights and candles in windows to the lighting of luminarias in the American Southwest and the traditional ritual of the Hanukkah Menorah. The show also recounts the historical, religious, and cultural rituals practiced during the winter solstice — Christian, Jewish, Celtic, Nordic, Roman, Irish, Mexican and Hopi.
