On Tuesdays and Thursdays at 2pm, AMNH is sharing previously recorded Facebook Lives of its halls and collections as watch parties on its Facebook page.
On Friday, March 27, at 1:30 pm, AMNH is hosting a “watch party” for the Space vs. Dinos video series on the Museum’s YouTube channel.
During the stream, viewers will have the chance to join a live chat with astrophysicist Jackie Faherty and paleontologist Aki Watanabe and ask about all things space and dinosaurs.
Dr. Faherty is known to many of us from her presentations during Manhattanhenge.
