Once a month from January through March, Montauk Observatory astronomers will set up their telescopes under the dark skies at the South Fork Natural History Museum (www.SoFo.org) in Bridgehampton and give guided tours of the heavens to all who attend.
The first half hour will consist of a brief lecture about stargazing, star-hopping, and general tips for observing. Then it's out to the field for a look at the wonders of the night sky.
Feel free to bring and set up your own telescope or binoculars, even do some astrophotography. Bundle up! Bring something to sit on if you plan to stay for a while.
Please note: The star party will not be held if the temperature falls below freezing, if it is snowing, raining, or if it is cloudy. On the day of the event, you may check viewing conditions on the Clear Sky Chart on Montauk Observatory's website (www.montaukobservatory.com/whatsup.cfm).
Refreshments will be available.
Cost: FREE, but donations are appreciated.
DATES & TIMES (weather permitting):
