We all know we live on the third planet from the Sun, but where are we in the universe? Blast off from Earth and take a grand tour to the farthest reaches of the observable universe with Assistant Director of the Hayden Planetarium Brian Abbott and astrophysics educator Irene Pease. Along the way, explore the nearby exoplanets, see where Earth is located in the Milky Way Galaxy, and discover why as we look farther out into space, we see further back in time to earlier epochs of the universe. Watch on AMNH’s YouTube channel.
