Star Gazing With Hofstra Astronomy at Eisenhower Park

Dr. Donald Lubowich, coordinator of astronomy outreach at Hofstra University, is bringing his Music and Astronomy Under the Stars program to Eisenhower Park on Sunday, September 20, from 6-10 p.m. Supported by a grant from NASA, Dr. Lubowich’s Music and Astronomy Under the Stars events allow participants to use telescopes and learn about the universe from Hofstra astronomy faculty. Weather-permitting, people may be able to view the sun, Saturn and its rings, Uranus, Neptune, star clusters, multi-colored double stars and nebulae. 

Music and Astronomy under the Stars will be stationed next to the Latino American Night music festival at Lakeside Theatre, Eisenhower Park (lot 6-6A).

Dr. Lubowich’s monthly Stars on Sundays program at Hofstra has been scheduled for  October 4, November 1 and December 6 from 7-9 p.m. Each program starts with an introduction to the night sky in room 117 Berliner Hall and then moves to the building’s fourth floor observatory. The Hofstra Observatory, partially supported by a grant from the National Science Foundation, features Celestron telescopes and computerized CCD cameras.

Admission is free for the Stars on Sundays events, but because space is limited, reservations are required. In case of inclement weather, check the website for cancellations.
