Zubenelgenubi's Magical Sky

Grades K -1

In this lively participatory program, cartoon characters talk to us as the daytime and nighttime sky are explored. The planetarium host is Zubenelgenubi (Zubee for short), and introduces visitors to the planetarium and the colorful characters enjoying the sky.

During the show, the audience is introduced to Tracy the telephone pole, Hydro the hydrant, and a talking Sun and Moon. During the program a point-out of constellations is followed by a story and stormy sky. Students pitch in to help to blow the storm away and the program ends with a peaceful sunrise and new day.

We say it like this: ZU-ben-ell-guh-NU-bee
