The Urania Astronomical Society of Berlin presents scientific lectures and demonstrations that run for nearly 100 performances at Carnegie Hall in 1892 and 1893.

Using the most modern lighting, design, photography, and special effects of the day, the displays recreate eclipses of the sun as seen from the moon, the evolution of the earth, and several of America’s most beautiful natural locations. The sold-out events were a success with both the public and scientific communities.
