FREE Stargazing Tonight in Central Park
Usually the first thing I like to do as night falls when I’m visiting other places is look up. Like, at the SKY. TO SEE STARS. ‘Member those? Those twinkly little reminders of our oh-so-insignificant place in the world are seldom seen in our great big apple, putting them right beside dishwashers in the awe-inspiring category.
Tonight, however, our sky’s aligned for a spectacular view thanks to the upcoming Vernal Equinox, and the Central Park Conservancy and Amateur Astronomers Association want to show you how with some Stargazing. Starting at 6:30PM, professionals at this BYOB event (that’s Bring Your Own Binoculars for all you stargazing newbies) will point out constellations, clusters, and maybe a Starman or two. Fear not those without ‘noc’s, they’ll also show you things seen with the naked eye and will apparently have a bigass telescope, too. If it’s cloudy, they’ll opt for an indoor lecture and slide-show.
Thursday, March 10th. 6:30PM. FREE.
