Hayden Planetarium Programs
Astronomy Live: The Grand Tour
July 29, 2014
Nearly all of us know we're 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 will answer these questions while you travel from Earth to the most distant objects in the universe. Explore planets, extrasolar planets, nearby stars, and the myriad galaxies that populate the universe while we fly through the 3D Digital Universe Atlas. In one evening, you will experience the entire observable universe and come to a cosmic understanding of where we are and how we came to be.
The best views of the universe happen at an evening program in the Hayden Planetarium. Enjoy tours of the cosmos with expert presenters, lively lectures, seasonal star parties, special events, and more.
