Sky Quest is an exploration of the stars, planets, and constellations told from the viewpoint of an astronomer. Share her lifelong fascination with the heavens — from her childhood adventures on Mars (via a cardboard rocket) — to the discovery of her "birthday star" that led her to become an astronomer and build her own mountain-top observatory. Produced for the Albert Einstein Planetarium, the National Air and Space Museum is the perfect place to see this educational and interactive classic!
Test your new knowledge from Sky Quest by visiting the National Air and Space Museum’s Phoebe Waterman Haas Public Observatory in Washington, DC. With day and night time observation hours, you can see the sun and stars with experts to answer questions.
