While we were in New York City for Mario's Fall Break we went to The Hayden Planetarium in the American Museum of Natural History. We have visited the American Museum of Natural History in New York in the past, but this was our fist time seeing the Space Show in the Planetarium. Mario is in the Astronomy Club at his school and is pretty much obsessed with everything outer space, so the Planetarium was something we were all really excited to visit during our trip to NYC. We saw Dark Universe, and when the Space Show began Mario thought we were actually blasting off into outer space - especially since the Hayden Planetarium is a sphere floating in the middle of the Rose Center for Earth and Space and it feels as though you are entering a spaceship. We assured Mario we were seeing a movie, but it truly did feel like we were blasted-off into outer space and immersed in space throughout our journey that took place on screen. After the Space Show, Mario got a green rock candy sucker (something he still talks about) and we explored the exhibitions. We had an amazing time at The Hayden Planetarium and can't wait to visit a Planetarium again in the future. Like Mario, I think outer space is infinitely cool!
