Summer Skies Telescope Party at the Hayden Planetarium

 

Enter Museum at Columbus Avenue at 79th Street, through the Weston Pavilion.

 

Join astronomers in the world-famous Hayden Planetarium as they provide details on how to observe the night sky, using our state-of-the-art Zeiss IX planetarium projector. Then, weather permitting, head outside to the Arthur Ross Terrace to observe celestial objects. (Participants are welcome to bring their own binoculars and telescopes.)

This event will be followed by a star party on the Arthur Ross Terrace co-hosted by the Amateur Astronomers Association.

Get tickets and more information here:

I am organizing the star party after the planetarium show.

    hey Jason, just so to be clear does everyone have to purchase a ticket ? Or if you have a telescope do you get to free access to the show? I just want to make sure.

    June 25, 2013

    • Jason K.

      Joe, you and Surayah are "on the list". Bring your gear to the Ross Terrace at 7:30. I'll be there. If you need, I'll help you get in. AMNH has you two on the list....

      June 25, 2013

  • Jason K.

    If you have not purchased your ticket, do so online as soon as possible. This event WILL sell out at the door.

    just got a ticket, so they're still available

    Just bought my ticket! First ever star party. Cannot wait!

  • Jason K.

    Thanks, Deborah. They will most certainly sell out over the weekend. If you have not yet purchased tickets, now would be the time.

    Looking forward to Tuesday!

    I am organizing the star party after the planetarium show. This is an AMNH event, featuring the telescopes and skills of the AAA if the skies are clear. The planetarium show will go forward even if it's thunderstorming. That, by the way, is interesting to hear in there.

      final word...

      1 · June 20, 2013

    • Eileen R.

      I like final words. So now I will eat first ... and David T (if he shows) will not have to tip like crazy if we stay past a restaurant's regular closing time! :)

      June 20, 2013

  • Eileen R.

    There is a rumor that David Teich may be operating the Zeiss Projector! Personally I don't think I can wait until after 10:30 pm to eat ... so I am down for something earlier than the 8:30 pm Hayden start time (for which I have already purchased my ticket direct from museum using provided link). Calle Ocho, Scaletta r my usual choices in the AMNH neighborhood. :)

    • Jason K.

      Usually, we go to Uno's after the star party. We stay in the bar area.

    Joe and Joe? Kat and Suryah? I assume y'all are bringing scopes?

      is the loneliest number that you'll ever do. Which goes by way of saying: go buy your ticket now....

      June 18, 2013

  • Jason K.

    I strongly advise buying your ticket in advance. This sells out.
