Join Jackie Faherty, a research scientist in the Museum’s Department of Astrophysics, for a special preview in the Hayden Planetarium on Tuesday, July 12. The program will include a visual explanation of Manhattenhenge using the state-of-the-art Zeiss Mark IX star projector and the Museum’s Digital Universe atlas, a four-dimensional atlas of the cosmos.

Before sunset on July 12 and 13, position yourself looking west  on such clear cross streets as 14th, 23rd, 34th, 42nd, and 57th, among others, to watch for striking photographic opportunities as the Sun drops to the horizon across the Hudson River.
