This month at the Museum, let astrophysicist Jackie Faherty guide you through Manhattanhenge, when the Sun aligns with the New York City street grid. Also join us for SpaceFest, a day-long, fun-filled celebration of the day 50 years ago when American astronauts stepped out of the Apollo 11 spacecraft onto the surface of the Moon.

Then, enjoy excerpts from a new musical adaptation of Herman Melville’s classic 1851 novel by Tony-Award nominee Dave Malloy and Tony-Award winner Rachel Chavkin, performed under the whale!
