Our Amazing Moon

In this star show we will explore a few of the myths, phenomena, misconceptions and hoaxes related to the Moon and the Apollo Program to better understand our silent neighbor in space and to show how anyone can study and explore the Moon from our backyards. After the star show visitors can join Planetarium staff as they continue to explore concepts related to the Moon through demonstrations.
