Description
On Saturday evening, November 9, the Amateur Astronomers Association of New York (AAA), in conjunction with the NYC Urban Park Rangers, will take Manhattan on a tour of our solar system and universe during its annual Urban Starfest in Central Park’s Sheep Meadow.

The Sheep Meadow is an open area of the park, free of glare from local lighting, where the majority of the urban night sky can be seen. There will be telescopes of various magnifications and design, capable of reaching out into the Milky Way Galaxy and beyond. Come have a look at the universe just a mile from Times Square and easily reachable by public transportation.
Additional Information
None
Directions
Enter at Central Park West at 67th Street, walking past the parking lot for the old Tavern on the Green towards the Sheep Meadow, a wide-open space. Look for a table staffed by Park Rangers and AAA members at the entrance to the meadow.
