Summary:"""""Exploring the Solar System: Big Sun, Small Moon"""" is a hands-on activity that explores the concept of apparent size and allows visitors to experience this phenomenon using familiar objects -- a tennis ball and a beach ball. Participants learn that the Sun and Moon appear the same size in our sky because although the Sun is much bigger than the moon, it is also much farther away."
