As the Sun sets on July 12, it will be aligned with Manhattan's east-west numbered streets, creating cinema-worthy photo opportunities of Manhattan's brick-and-steel canyons. Astrophysicist Jackie Faherty will be your guide to the history and astronomy behind this fascinating phenomenon in a special presentation at the Hayden Planetarium.
