Nearly everyone knows that Earth is the third planet from the Sun, but where is the Sun among the other stars in the Milky Way? Travel from Earth to the most distant objects in the universe, past exoplanets, nearby stars, and galaxies, to gain a cosmic understanding of where we are and how we came to be.
These monthly programs offer an interactive tour of the universe and a view of the constantly changing night sky. Learn about what is visible in our nighttime sky with the brilliant stars of the Zeiss Mark IX star projector or travel to the edge of the observable universe with the Digital Universe Atlas, a scientifically accurate 3D atlas of the known universe assembled and maintained by Museum scientists.
