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.
