The kids observe the full Moon at night and wonder why it seems to have a "face." They research why the light and dark splotches seem to make a face, and ultimately decide to fly to the Moon's surface so they can see for themselves what the light and dark splotches are made of. The kids are digging again down by the Lake, and dig up a part of an old rocket. This leads Sydney to tell another "Lone Star" story, this one about how long ago, when Boxwood Terrace was called "Boxwood Territory," early astronomer Lone Star engineered and built the first rockets.

"More than One Moon" - Mindy is shocked to learn that there is more than one moon in the solar system. Celery flies the kids out to Mars so they can see what its two moons look like compared to ours. Curriculum: There is more than one moon in the Universe; in fact, there are hundreds of moons in our own Solar System. Mars has 2 moons, Phobos and Deimos, which are unusual in that they are not round like our moon, but oddly shaped, like battered potatoes. "Visit to Mom's Office" - Sean and Sydney take Jet to meet Sean's mom, a scientist, at the Deep Space Array.

The kids can't play shadow tag because the Sun keeps going behind clouds. Mindy wants the sun to be out all the time! Face 9000 tells them about a system with not one, but three suns! That sounds like a place where there would be shadows all the time. Celery takes them to visit in the family saucer. Sean becomes an amateur magician called the Great Seanzo, dazzling the other kids with magnet tricks. Jet becomes fascinated by magnets, and they all explore the various things magnets can do, culminating in a magic magnet show for Carrot.

The kids get information from Dr. Rafferty and then travel to outer space to confirm the amazing fact that there is no sound in outer space... even though Jet is convinced he's heard sounds all over the solar system. / After Mindy laments the fact that she's still only 4 and still can't go to space with the other kids, Sydney, Jet, Sean, and Sunspot plan a full makeshift, cobbled together "Day in Space" right there in Jet's yard. Mindy's day ends on a nearby hilltop where they all watch a real, amazing, actual space event - the Leonid Meteor Showers shooting across the sky!
