Explore the relationship between the Earth, Moon and Sun with the help of Coyote, a character adapted from Native American oral traditions who has many misconceptions about our home planet and its neighbors. His confusion about the universe helps viewers think about how the Earth, Moon and Sun work together as a system. Native American stories are used throughout the show to help distinguish between myths and science. Audience members will learn why the Sun rises and sets, examine the Moon’s orbit, craters, phases and eclipses, and explore past and future space travel to our Moon and beyond.
