The Milky Way Galaxy

Numerous celestial events make the news but what is the science behind them? What’s so special about a Super Moon? Why does the Moon appear red sometimes? What's the origin of the zodiac? Emily Rice and Jackie Faherty will explore these phenomena and more, using both the Zeiss star projector and the 3D Digital Universe Atlas.
