A lovely spot to stargazing on the Upper East Side. It's all free, with expert stargazers in a casual environment.

The Sun will set at 6:56 p.m., EDT. The waning gibbous Moon will be two nights past full and will rise at 7:33 p.m. The Summer Triangle will still be high overhead in the evening sky. Possible deep-space objects will include globular clusters M13, M15, and M4; open star clusters such as the Pleiades and the Double Cluster; and the Alpha Persei Association. We may look at other targets as well—perhaps even the Ring Nebula.
Bring a date, and grab a slice on 2nd Avenue before coming out to this lovely little park.
