Hayden Planetarium Programs
Family Astronomy in the Dome: I Spy in the Sky
October 18, 2014
The Hayden Planetarium invites our Youngest Astronomers for an evening of star hopping as we look at the fall and winter constellations of the night sky using the Zeiss Star projector. See if you can find the beautiful “deep-sky” objects hiding in plain sight. Explore star clusters, nebulae, and galaxies, and learn how our understanding of the stars and these deep-sky treasures has grown over the centuries. (This program is recommended for children ages 4-11).
*Participants should bring a pair of binoculars to participate fully in this program.
