Davis Planetarium

In the Davis Planetarium at the Maryland Science Center, day turns to night on the dome of its Star Theater as thousands of stars and planets appear overhead. Witness what would happen if you got too close to a black hole and see how one is able to warp time and space. Immerse yourself in a race to return to the moon 40 years after the historic Apollo landings. See how a competition among privately funded international teams is ushering in a new era of lunar exploration. Learn about the moon’s resources and discover what humanity’s future on the moon might hold. Shows can be made in conjunction with other activities at the Maryland Science Center.

Planetarium Lesson Plan

FUN FACTS

Earth has more exposed water than land.  Three quarters of the Earth is covered by water! The earth has one moon.

Venus is the brightest planet in our sky and can sometimes be seen with the naked eye if you know where to look.  It is the solar system’s brightest planet — yellow clouds of sulfuric acid reflect the sun’s light.

Jupiter is so big that you could fit all the other planets in the solar system inside it.

Pluto is no longer considered a planet — instead, astronomers call it a dwarf planet or planetoid.
