Hayden Planetarium, New York, postcard, 1936


Hayden Planetarium, New York, postcard, 1936



5 5/16 x 3 1/2

Verso: THE HAYDEN PLANETARIUM, the man-made heavens, with its 75-foot copper dome on the grounds of the Museum of Natural History. Made possible by the gift of $150,000 from Charles Hayden, its cosmic ray reflected from the Zeiss projector shows the starry world so accurately that the daily audiences may see not only the planets, sun, and galaxies of stars but may view the exact universe overhead that shone above Waterloo, over Bethlehem, and as far back as the earliest ages - the wonder spot of New York.
