New York Stargazing Party

Tonight,  Friday, June 7 ( Saturday if it's cloudy tonight)  the Mid-Hudson Astronomical Association is sponsoring a star party for members and the general public. The event, which will occur at the Lake Taghkanic State Park, will take place from 8:30 PM until later in the evening. You have to let them know your license plate soon so they can let you in the park later. For further info text or call Jack Chastain at 845 430 6851 or Tim Denman at 845 245 548


All are invited to enjoy the night sky away from the bright lights of the towns and cities in our area! The night will be dark - perfect for star gazing. Observers can bring their own telescopes and binoculars or use those provided by our members. A telescope is not necessary.


Telescope operators arrive about 30 minutes early to set up. Observing begins about an hour after sunset and will probably end around 11:30 PM, or whenever club members decide. All will take place at the park's West Beach parking lot. 


In the event of cloudy skies the event will be postponed until Saturday or canceled.  Registered attendees will be emailed and the MHAA MeetUp site will be edited accordingly 


Participants should bring a mask in case others nearby ask them to be worn or for their own protection when near others. 


Participants *MUST* RSVP with their car's make, model, and license plate number at .This info is required by and sent to Park management, the State Police, and the State Park Police because the participants are there after park hours.
