The amount of daylight we experience varies throughout the year and from place to place. Some places have longer days and nights than others, and the length of each day changes with the seasons. Blast off into outer space with Museum astrophysicists Jackie Faherty and Daniella Bardalez Gagliuffi to discover why Earth’s tilt is the reason for our seasons, what seasons on our neighboring planets are like, and why.

Science teacher and Museum Master of Arts in Teaching alum Deion Desir pilots our journey in OpenSpace, the interactive data visualization software designed to visualize the entire universe, taking viewers above Earth’s atmosphere and across our solar system.
