Earth’s closest neighbor in space will fascinate children (and accompanying adults), as kids learn to recognize the features and patterns of the earth/moon/sun system as observed from Earth, differences in the features of the day and night sky and apparent movement of objects across the sky as observed from Earth, and recognize patterns of observable changes in the Moon’s appearance from day to day.
This project was supported by the United Arts Council of Catawba County through the North Carolina Arts Council, with funding from the State of North Carolina and the National Endowment for the Arts, which believes that a great nation deserves great art.
Seasonal Stargazing provides a look at the stars and constellations of the current night sky.
Planetarium shows are included in CSC’s General Admission, on a first-come, first-seated basis.
