And the ghosts and goblins ringing doorbells are not spirits but young two-legged costumed creatures in search of treasured candy… All around the world, people have imagined seeing all sorts of strange things and faces in the moon.

MoonWitch examines the nature of the moon and its changing appearance in the sky.

On Halloween we meet Billy and Diana, a brother and sister who are trick-or-treating. Diana notices that no matter where she goes the moon seems to follow. Back home, Mom and Dad explain moon appearance and motion. Together, they use their imagination to discover a man, a rabbit, a frog, and yes, a MoonWitch.

Diana learns that the moon is nothing more than a ball in space, smaller than the Earth. Diana continues to share her new knowledge of the moon with her teacher and classmates and demonstrates why the moon goes through faces or phases. Diana tells her father that she sometimes dreams of being the first woman to land on the moon. Her lunar lander is named The MoonWitch.

Ideal for grades 2nd through 5th, and as a family Halloween program. Also now available as interactive exhibit for use in lobbies, exhibit galleries, classrooms.

AstroNotes programs were designed to provide very low cost programs exploring space science at lengths that keep childrens attention.
