TIME: 6:00PM

LOCATION: Bridgehampton

PRICE: Free

APPROPRIATE FOR AGES: All Ages

Cosponsored by the South Fork Natural History Museum (SoFo) and the Montauk Observatory and the South Fork Natural History Museum

Join SoFo and the Montauk Observatory for a night of stargazing! Enjoy some warm refreshments as astronomers from the Montauk Observatory explain the night sky. Montauk Observatory astronomers will set up their telescopes under SoFo's dark skies and give guided tours of the heavens to all who attend. The first half-hour will consist of a brief lecture about stargazing, star-hopping, and general tips for observing. Then it's out into the field for a look at the wonders of the night sky. Feel free to bring binoculars or to set up your own telescope, and even do some astrophotography. Bundle up! Bring something to sit on if you plan to stay for a while. On the day of the event, you may check viewing conditions on the Clear Sky Chart on Montauk Observatory's website.
