Planet Mercury

This event is now CANCELED and will be rescheduled at a later date. For more information or to request a refund, please contact Central Reservations at 212-769-5200.

Thanks to the recently completed MESSENGER mission, we can now explore our innermost planet in detail. Resembling our Moon, and with a similar atmosphere, Mercury has enough activity in its interior to generate a small magnetic field. Join guides Denton Ebel and Carter Emmart for an up-close examination of our solar system’s smallest planet.

Support for Hayden Planetarium Programs is provided by the Horace W. Goldsmith Endowment Fund.
