As the sun sets on July 11th, it will be perfectly aligned with Manhattan's East-West numbered streets, creating cinema-worthy photo opportunities of Manhattan's brick-and-steel canyons. Jackie Faherty will be your guide to the history and simple astronomy behind this unique event in a special presentation at the Hayden Planetarium.

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.
