Lucia: The Secret of Shooting Stars

June 28 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

| $7.00

Vladimir, a polar bear, and James, a penguin, travel into space aboard the Polaris to study polar auroras.  Hit by a meteorite, they crash at the foot of a pre-Columbian pyramid and meet Lucia, a hummingbird who is passionate about rocks. She tells them about a legend evoking “stones of light”.  Meteorites, shooting stars, these “stones of light” intrigue them all.  Searching for answers, they board for the Moon, then the asteroid belt, and finally land on a comet nucleus.  Observations and analyses will allow them to find answers to their questions about these objects and learn about the origin of the solar system.
