What we're about

Anyone interested in learning more about the stars, constellations, planets, viewing objects through a telescope, viewing meteors, satellites and much more. We gather on a heated platform on our farm during the fall and winter and sit in comfort under the stars as an astronomer guides us through the constellations with a laser pointer. For about 90 minutes, you will discover giant red stars, distant galaxies, nebula, double stars and more. We also view objects through a telescope. This is not a singles group, although singles are welcome and families as well. Come explore the stars with us!

Stargazing Boat Cruise!

12 River St

Memorial day weekend - Sunday night, come enjoy a spectacular cruise out under the stars! The boat cruises away from all the lights into the dark skies in Long island Sound. Out there in the dark skies you can see thousands of more stars and if you have never seen the Milky Way in detail, you don't want to miss this cruise! Your on board astronomer will guide you through the constellations and use a light pointer to show you giant red stars, nebula, planets and more! The soothing ocean combined with the beauty of the night sky, makes this cruise good for the soul, but also educational and fun! The cost is $60 per person, payable when boarding, cash only. This cruise is going to be with other meetup groups, so space is limited. RSVP today to secure your spaces. Thanks! ~Mark
