: Middle School

In this presentation, discover how the relationships between Earth, the Moon, and the Sun cause the phases of the Moon as well as solar and lunar eclipses. Observe the plane of our galaxy, the Milky Way, in the model sky, and learn why it looks the way it does. Explore galaxies outside our own, and see how big and far away they really are. Learn how looking into deep space gives us a glimpse into the history of the universe. A 40-minute introductory version is available for multi-grade reservations.
