Life on Earth's surface depends on the energy of the Sun and the cycles of seasons and climate. Join the Museum's Director of Astrovisualization Carter Emmart for a presentation in the Hayden Planetarium Space Theater that draws on data from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to see what causes these cycles, how life on Earth responds in grand migrations, and the effects of human habitat change.
Venue Description: A museum for the 21st century, with a rich and storied past and one of the greatest natural history museums in the world, with over 40 exhibition halls. Open daily from 10am to 5:45pm except on Thanksgiving and Christmas.
