The Amateur Astronomers Association hosts solar observing one Saturday morning each month in Central Park. We’re located right by Conservatory Water (to which many people refer as the “model boat pond”). That’s where model boats are floated and where people observe Pale Male and his celebrated family of red-tailed hawks who live right across Fifth Avenue. The closest entrances are on Fifth Avenue at 72nd and 76th streets. See the directions below.

    Solar observing at Conservatory Water was the first Amatuer Astrnonomy Association observing session I ever went to. What a great day! The AAA observers were so eager to share their scopes, spy on Pale Male (the greatest celebrity bird Fifth Avenue has ever seen!) SAFELY check out the Sun through Thousand Oaks Solar Filters and casually discuss their encyclopedic knowledge of all things Astronomical. With my friend, the brilliant NASA Jet Propulsion Lab Ambassador, Astronomy Professor Jason Kendall leading this event and using his state of the art 'scope to do so, this should be a terrific event to safely see the Sun and meet extremely interesting new friends of all ages. This promises to be a beautiful day in the Park. See you there!
