Stargazing Party

August 10 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm

$10.00

Try out Stargazing at the TAPRoots Farm!

Astronomy is a fascinating and rewarding pastime!  It allows us to see beautiful sights, such as misty whirlpool galaxies and glittering star clusters, and witness incredible events, such as meteor showers and eclipses. It gives us a unique sense of perspective, too.

Public astronomer Burney Baron will introduce us to wonders of the night sky!  We will have several telescopes available to view planets and stars more closely.  Whether you are a newcomer to studying the stars or have been doing this for years, there are always new things to learn – a pleasant evening under the stars can be enjoyed by all.  And of course there will be appropriately themed beverages and snacks to cap off the evening!

Join us shortly after the August new moon to survey the night skies!  Thanks to host Tom Pearson, this program will take place at TAProots Farm on the Keuka Lake Bluff, where there is minimal light pollution.  The sun will set at 8:16 p.m., so we will get to witness the sunset as we get started.  Come enjoy the wonders of the heavens with others, all under a sky much darker than the one at home.

(6 days after new moon)

Sunset:  8:16 p.m.

Moonrise:  11:56 a.m.
