Stargazing in the Preserve

March 13 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Stargazing in the Preserve

Peer into the cosmos with Vinny Coulehan of the Rockland Astronomy Club.

With the super new moon on March 10, we should have relatively dark skies. We’ll use a telescope to observe the waxing crescent moon only 15% illuminated, as well as Jupiter, Orion, and more!

Meet in the Visitor’s Center courtyard.

Bring water and a flashlight or headlamp with a red setting. Dress warmly and bring a lightweight folding chair if you are uncomfortable standing for 1.5 hours.

In case of bad weather, the event may be canceled or postponed; you will be notified via email at least 2 hours in advance.

Max: 20 people.

You may also be interested in attending the Space Rocks presentation beforehand where you’ll learn about asteroids, comets, and meteorites. You’ll even get to hold an iron meteorite forged in the core of an asteroid as old as the solar system itself!
