MAH | Earth, Moon and Sun

July 14, 2020 @ 10:00 am 10:30 am

Why does the Sun rise and set?
What does the Moon look like close-up?
What causes the Moon to appear to change shape over the month?

Let’s explore the relationship between Earth, the Moon, and the Sun. We’ll use planetarium software to help us answer these questions.

To extend this lesson, you can watch the FREE 360° video of Morehead’s planetarium show Earth, Moon and Sun here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GuZXKh6Uuao&feature=youtu.be
