This is a group that charters a large boat on weekend evenings during the summer and fall to cruise out into the dark skies in the middle of Long Island Sound for a 3 hour astronomy cruise. This is NOT a group intended for singles only, so anyone interested in the stars is welcome. Once you become a member, you can invite up to 6 guests when you RSVP for one of the cruises. We do this to escape the light pollution and view the splendor of a dark night sky full of stars. Most of CT and RI towns and cities are highly light polluted and the Milky Way is not visible for most. In the dark skies out in the middle of Long Island, the Milky Way and meteors are amazing! When the boat comes to a stop, the on board astronomer uses a laser on the top open deck of the boat and traces out the constellations and discusses the Milky Way, meteor showers, red giant stars, planets, black holes, nebula, double stars, star clusters and much more. This is our 4th year! This event is quite a unique experience that is amazingly beautiful and fun!
