Join the AMNH's Joe Rao and astrophysics educator Christina Pease to view the sky as it appears in different parts of the world using the Hayden Planetarium's Zeiss Mark IX star projector. Travel to polar regions and watch the midnight Sun effect, head south of the equator to see inverted star patterns and an upside-down Moon, and return home to the familiar New York City sky.
This event is part of the Astronomy Live series at the American Museum of Natural History. These Hayden Planetarium programs let visitors explore the night sky with the Zeiss Mark IX star projector or travel to the farthest reaches of the observable universe with the world's most complete cosmic atlas, the Digital Universe.
