Grand Tour of the Universe

Nearly all of us know Earth is the third planet from the Sun, but where are we among the stars in the Milky Way? Do we hold a special place among the planets, stars, and galaxies in the universe? The Grand Tour in the dome of the Hayden Planetarium will answer these questions and more as viewers “travel” from Earth to the most distant objects in the universe. Explore planets inside and outside our solar system, nearby stars, and the myriad galaxies that populate the universe, using visualizations based on the comprehensive Digital Universe Atlas, the most complete and accurate 3D map of the universe.
