  • Description

    Titles read: "A TRIP TO MARS!"

    New York, United States of America.

    Various shots at the Hayden Planetarium in the New York World's Fair as Dr Clyde Fisher trains a huge telescope on planet Mars. Other people stand around looking towards the heavens. Various shots of Mars, the moon and the lunar landscape, presumably projected onto the planetarium screen. We also see Earth, after darkness has descended over the western hemisphere. L/S at night (looks like a still) of the New York World's Fair, with the Trylon (trylon?) and Perisphere illuminated.
