Program Leader: William Francis Taylor, Montauk Observatory’s Senior Educator
First, a brief orientation and then we’ll set up our telescopes under the dark skies of the field behind SOFO and give guided tours of the heavens to all who attend. Feel free to bring your binoculars and/or set up your own telescope, or do astrophotography. An enjoyable and educational adventure for the whole family! On the day of the event, you may wish to check viewing conditions on the Clear Sky Chart on Montauk Observatory’s website. www.montaukobservatory.com. Please note: The star party will not be held if it is snowing, raining, or cloudy. This is a free event.
Advanced reservations are required for all events. For more information, reservations, and directions to meeting places, please call: (631) 537-9735.
