Program Leaders: Montauk Observatory Astronomers
Montauk Observatory astronomers will set up their telescopes under the dark skies of the South Fork Natural History Museum (SOFO) in Bridgehampton to give guided tours of the heavens to all who attend. At 6:00 PM, you’ll learn about what you’ll be seeing—the Moon, planets, nebulae—then we’ll go outside to observe. Feel free to bring chairs, refreshments (for one or all), to set up your own telescope or binoculars or do astrophotography. A fun and educational event for the whole family! Please note: The star parties will not be held if it is snowing, raining, or very cloudy. Call SOFO at 631 537-9735 if you are uncertain about the weather conditions. This is a free program.
Advanced reservations are required for all events. For more information, reservations, and directions to meeting places, please call: (631) 537-9735.
