STARGAZING WITH MONTAUK OBSERVATORY

December 7 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

From 6:00 – 8:00 PM 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, even the Andromeda Galaxy—then we’ll go outside to observe.  Feel free to bring a blanket or a lawn chair, refreshments (for one or all), to set up your own telescope or binoculars or do astrophotography.  A free, fun and educational event for the whole
family!
Please note: These events will not be held if it is snowing, raining, or very cloudy.
