Saturday, July 14, 9:30 to 10:30 PM
at The Big Field at Croton Landing Park
Summer nights are a great time to look to the skies! This Saturday is especially exciting. We have a chance to see five of our solar system's planets stretched across Croton's sky at the same time. Come on out to The Big Field at Croton Landing as night falls to join local astronomy writer and dark sky advocate Scott Levine. Scott will be our sky guide as he points out our nearest planetary neighbors and shows us some of the summer constellations that we can see with just the naked eye. Or just come to enjoy a dark and quiet night under starry skies. Bring blankets, lawn chairs, and your love of the sky.
This is a free event, open to the public, come and go as you please. If the skies are too cloudy, this event may need to be cancelled without notice.
This is the second in a series of events meant to raise awareness within the Croton community about the importance of dark skies and the detrimental effects of light pollution. Keep watching for information from the CCAC about more dark sky events.
