Seeing! A Photon's Journey Across Space, Time & Mind
Narrated by Neil deGrasse Tyson

Ride a photon across the galaxy to your mind's eye and experience how we see.  “SEEING!” follows a photon’s creation and journey across the galaxy to a young stargazer’s eye.  It also explores some of the fascinating processes of the cosmos, from astrophysics to the biology of the human eye and brain.  The program is narrated by noted astronomer and science communicator Neil deGrasse Tyson.

During the live portion of the show, we'll look deep into the night sky at some of the farthest objects in space.
