As the Sun sets around the time of the summer solstice, it perfectly aligns with Manhattan’s east-west numbered streets, offering the opportunity to capture cinema-worthy photos of Manhattan’s brick-and-steel canyons. Astrophysicist Jackie Faherty will be your guide to the history and astronomy behind this fascinating phenomenon in a special presentation at the Hayden Planetarium.

Venue: American Museum of Natural History
