Hayden Planetarium Programs
July 13, 2015
As the sun sets on July 13th, it will be perfectly aligned with Manhattan's East-West numbered streets, creating cinema-worthy photo opportunities of Manhattan's brick-and-steel canyons. Jackie Faherty will be your guide to the history and astronomy behind this fascinating phenomenon in a special presentation at the Hayden Planetarium.
Support for Hayden Planetarium Programs is provided by the Horace W. Goldsmith Endowment Fund.
