Due to icy conditions, the board has decided to postpone the event.
We will let you know the new date asap.
EVENT CHAIR: Debra McGowanThe Amateur Astronomy Association Of New York are lending us their expertise, telescopes, and equipment so we can view the Moon, Jupiter, and the stars! Our rain date is March 7 at the same time. Special thank you goes to Robin Fine who pioneered this event.
To find out more about our co-hosting event organizers, please visit their website, aaa.org.
We are encouraging parents to keep an watchful eye on children especially under the age of 11. Bring flash lights, glow sticks and glow-in-the-dark clothing or light-colored clothing to see them in the dark.
Our new event will have:
Vending of home baked goods; hot drinks like coca, tea & coffee to keep us warm; and a few things that glow. AAA is bringing about 3 telescopes to view in. We will chalk-out a scaled down solar system on the black top. A craft table or two to have a bit more fun. We will have a set up for 'light-painting' photography.
PLEASE note: This our first event using Wild Apricot (our website platform) requesting for volunteers. Volunteering park members please give us feedback if this worked out nicely. Thank you.
