Tidewater Community College explores relationship between science and myth

HAMPTON ROADS, Va. – Tidewater Community College’s newest planetarium show will explore the relationship between the earth, wind and sun on Sept. 22 at 6:00 p.m. and 7:15 p.m.

Mythological storyteller Cody Coyote will be the host of the program, and will confront his own concussion between science and myth.

Guests will learn why the sun rises and sets; examine the moon’s orbit, phases and eclipses; and explore past and future space travel.

In addition, the planetarium will offer a rock music laser light show, “Lasermania,” with music ranging from artists Shania Twain to Sting to Ricky Martin. That show is at 8:30 p.m.

TCC’s planetarium is in the Science Building on the college’s Virginia Beach Campus.

Admission is free and open to the public, but reservations are required for each show. To reserve a seat, call the TCC Information Center at 757-822-1122 or register online at www.tcc.edu/planetarium.
