Summer and early fall are great times of year for stargazing—summer offering warm nights and fall bringing into view the farthest object seen from Earth with the naked eye, the Andromeda Galaxy. 

Join the Museum’s Director of Astrovisualization Carter Emmart and Museum astrophysicist Jackie Faherty for a virtual, around-the-world tour of the current night sky. Come face-to-face with constellations and discover all you can learn about the universe by just looking up! 

Join the livestream on Friday, September 18, at 1 pm EDT.
