Long Island: Catch a Glimpse of Space

Space Day on Long Island - Coach Realtors

May 6th is National Space Day. What better way to celebrate than by checking out the tremendous innovations in space exploration we've made over the years? Or by experiencing the beauty of space for yourself? There are great options to do both right in your new neighborhood. If you're looking at Nassau County homes for sale, you can pay a visit to the Cradle of Aviation Museum. Or if you're looking at Suffolk County homes for sale, you'll want to see the Vanderbilt Planetarium.

  • Cradle of Aviation Museum - Charles Lindbergh Boulevard, Garden City, NY 11530
    Near these Garden City homes for sale, the Cradle of Aviation Museum is all about flight, from kites and hot air balloons all the way to the rockets that have taken us into space. Among the exhibits is a replica of the first liquid-fuel rocket ever built, the Goddard A-Series, in the 1920s.

    Of course, not all the exhibits are just replicas. There are also a number of real space modules, such as the Rockwell Command Module 002, which flew to the moon and back in 1966, and the Grumman Lunar Module LM-13, built for the canceled Apollo 19 mission. There's also a Grumman Lunar Module simulator built to help astronauts prepare for the journey.

    The museum also has a planetarium with a wide array of space shows and exhibits. There's an exploration of the night sky, a trip through the asteroid belt, an exploration of what humans' first mission to Mars will be like, and much more. Plus, go with Big Bird and Elmo on an exploration of the stars and constellations in One World, One Sky.

    The Cradle of Aviation Museum is open Tuesday through Sunday, 10 am-5 pm. Tickets are $21 for adults 13 and up, or $19 for children and seniors. There are also private bookings available for parties and other events.

  • The Vanderbilt's Charles and Helen Reichert Planetarium - 180 Little Neck Rd., Centerport, NY 11721
    The Charles and Helen Reichert Planetarium is part of the Vanderbilt Museum. It provides a variety of different shows and events to teach children and adults alike about the wonders of space. Open Friday through Sunday, there's an ever-rotating schedule of daytime and evening shows, plus live lectures on the stars and planets.

    Current shows include Stars, narrated by Mark Hamill, about the birth, life, and death of everything from pulsars to black holes, and Dynamic Earth, which explores the oceans, atmosphere, climate, and more. Plus, the Vanderbilt Planetarium is also playing One World, One Sky, the Sesame Street-helmed exploration of the stars.

    The planetarium even has a rooftop observatory, where visitors can get a guided tour of the real night sky via their powerful Meade reflecting telescope. The observatory is open every Friday night, and, as it happens, National Space Day falls on a Friday.

    Plus, if you like to hike, you might check out the Solar System Hiking Trail, a mile-long loop that includes a scale model of the solar system. Hikers start at the sun and walk around to all eight planets. Note that the trail is only for experienced hikers.

    Daytime shows are $16 for adults, $15 for students and seniors, or $13 for children under 12. Evening shows are $10 for adults, $9 for students and seniors, or $8 for children. There are also laser shows featuring a dazzling display of flashing, colorful lights set to music.
