FROM THE CITY TO THE STARS: A NIGHT OF STARGAZING AT BROOKLYN BRIDGE PARK

stargazing
Date: Saturday, June 4, 2011
Time: 08:30 PM-12:00 AM
Venue: Brooklyn Bridge Park – Pier 1

Join professional and amateur astronomers for a free evening of urban stargazing. An outdoor party beneath the Brooklyn Bridge and the twinkling canvas of the night sky, it will be a night to explore and discover the vast wonders of the cosmos. Bring your telescope if you have one, or use one of the dozens we’ll have on hand. Or crawl under the night canvas of the Discovery Dome, an HD curved projection theater featuring asteroids, the solar system, and future space technologies for living on the moon and beyond. Bring a blanket, grab a tasty street bite and a glass of wine from the area food trucks, and space out to the cosmic beats of DJ Duckcomb (from the band Trap.Avoid) as we look to the stars together and imagine the worlds beyond.

Amateur Astronomers: Please click HERE to pre-register your telescope specs in order to ensure proper support. All others: No need to register; see you there!
