The Voyager spacecraft recently encountered the "edge" of the solar system, beginning its journey through interstellar space. The Sun and Earth exist in the galactic outskirts, closer to our galaxy's periphery than its center. What distinguishes a dwarf planet from a planet? In this program, we will explore the wheres and whys of stars, galaxies, and the universe, and discuss astronomical "species" such as planets, brown dwarfs, and star clusters. Join us as we go to, through, and beyond the edges of space! For additional information, please call 212-769-5100 or visit the Museum’s website, amnh.org

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.
