Learn what it takes to be an amateur astronomer in New York City, get oriented to the night sky, test out a telescope in the garden, and observe the starry night high above Wave Hill.

This program is rain or shine, with an indoor presentation only in the case of rain. Adults and children aged 12 and older are welcome.
