What types of astronomical phenomena are observable from Earth? In this program, Museum research scientist Jackie Faherty uses the power of the Dome's Zeiss IX Projector and the Museum's Digital Universe Atlas to simulate numerous exciting celestial phenomena. From transits of the inner planets, to partial and total solar and lunar eclipses, she will simulate events you should expect and when you can expect to see them.

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.
