We will begin with a live planetarium tour of the local night time sky. And then join two dogs as they spend a day in the house...but not just any day... This is the day of the solar eclipse! Mom leaves for the morning, mentioning that she is keeping Sandy (a wise, older golden retriever) and Pepper (an inquisitive, young beagle) inside so they won't hurt their eyes by looking at the eclipse. Pepper wants to know what a solar eclipse is, how it happens, and how it affects humans, animals, and the Earth. Sandy uses household and neighborhood objects to define and explain how the scale and motion of the moon, earth, and sun create eclipses. Full and partial eclipses are thoroughly discussed, as are safe viewing methods. Pepper is in awe of Sandy's knowledge...Sandy is impressed with Pepper's ability to learn. Dog humor abounds. Mom returns, Dad comes home from work and they turn on the TV news. The lead story is about the day's eclipse...the TV newscaster verifies Sandy's information...Pepper is again impressed...but now wants to know how those little people get in the TV...another story for another day says Sandy.
