Experience Manhattanhenge

As the Sun sets on July 12, it will be perfectly aligned 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.

The planetarium program ends before the sun sets on Manhattan’s cross streets at 8:28 pm.

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