Our Cosmic Ballet
Due to the coronavirus, please call to ensure this event is still happening before you leave home.
All objects in the universe are in constant motion. Throughout our 13-billion-year history, and looking forward into the not-so-distant future, stars zip by each other, space objects collide, and galaxies merge. Astrophysicist Jackie Faherty uses the power of the Museum's digital software to show guests the cosmic ballet of stars and galaxies as they dance around each other through time.
