In this lively participatory program characters come alive as the daytime and nighttime sky are explored. The program uses simple astronomy concepts and is intended for kindergarten or first grade students. The planetarium director plays the part of Zubenelgenubi, and has lines that fit into the presentation of the show. During the show, the audience is introduced to Tracy the telephone pole, Hydro the hydrant, and a talking Sun and Moon (shown above). A section for constellation identification is provided, which 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.

Suggestions are given for a short introduction to the program, which may include models, globes or any number of astronomy demonstrations. These introductory techniques often make students more comfortable and help create an interesting and exciting learning environment.
