As the Sun sets around the time of the summer solstice, it perfectly aligns with Manhattan's east-west numbered streets, offering the opportunity to capture cinema-worthy photos of Manhattan's brick-and-steel canyons. Astrophysicist Jackie Faherty will be your guide to the history and astronomy behind this fascinating phenomenon in a special presentation at the Hayden Planetarium.

Please note: There is no late seating in the Hayden Planetarium Space Theater. Guests arriving after the program starts will not be permitted to enter the dome.

 

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