Learn the history and astronomy behind "Manhattanhenge," a phrase coined by Hayden Planetarium director Neil deGrasse Tyson that describes the unique event when the sun aligns with Manhattan's gridded network of streets and avenues. You and the kids can join astrophysicist Jackie Faherty for a special presentation (using the Planetarium's Digital Universe Atlas) before going outside to see the spectacular view of Manhattanhenge itself. Registration required at Ages 10 and up.
