Star Party

November 17 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

We invite you to join the Albany Area Amateur Astronomers (AAAA) for star gazing in the truly dark skies of the Landis Arboretum.With the help of our good neighbors Dollar General and Hannaford Supermarket, whose external light fixtures were designed to minimize light pollution, the Arboretum remains a prime and rare “dark sky” location in which to view nebulae, star clusters, galaxies, planets, and other celestial sights through AAAA telescopes. Alan French will hold an introductory program in the Meeting House followed by a short, outdoor tour of the prominent constellations. Registration is suggested because Star Parties are canceled if the skies are mostly cloudy. Register online at http: / tinyurl.com/2017starparties or by calling the Arboretum at 518-875-6935.

 

Cost: FREE
