Based on the trickster of Native American lore, Coyote is constantly corrected in his misunderstandings of how things work. A live tour of the Maine sky and its beautiful constellations completes this micro-unit of astronomy. Tickets for planetarium programs are…

For thousands of years, mankind thought that the earth was the center of the universe. Thanks to our curiosity, imagination and urge to explore, we now know that planets like our earth are nothing special in the cosmos. The sun is just one ordinary star among hundreds of billions in our galaxy, the Milky Way. With the world’s most powerful telescopes, we are able to explore more and more of the universe. What we have found so far has surpassed…
