Earth, Moon & Sun

We see the Sun and Moon every day, yet there are many misconceptions about what we see.  Why exactly does the appearance of the Moon change from time to time, why is the Moon sometimes visible during the day, and why do eclipses occur?   Join the popular Native American mythical character Coyote to find out.  This fun and informative fulldome movie weaves together Native American legends and scientific understanding of the Earth, Moon and Sun system to help distinguish between myths and science.
