Dress for a cool summer evening. The air is cooler on the water, so bringing or wearing jackets, sweatshirts, pants, sweats, and sneakers are all good ideas. You can bring alcohol on the boat in moderation. You can bring some snacks on the boat. The boat also sells a limited amount of snacks and drinks. The boat only accepts cash for food and drink. You are welcome to bring binoculars, but they are not required for the program. I will be pointing out some interesting objects to view with binoculars.

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
