February 2: Vanderbilt Planetarium Outing

Our first Project Stewardship outing of the Spring 2018 season will be to the Vanderbilt Planetarium for the Long Island Skies presentation (8pm) developed by Planetarium staff using the star projector to its fullest capabilities. The program introduces the brilliant night sky seen on Long Island from everyone’s backyard, including seasonal constellations, stars and deep-sky objects.

We will attend a second presentation, Black Holes: Journey into the Unknown (9pm) which presents the latest information about the extreme world of black holes. Witness what would happen if you got too close to one and see how a black hole can warp time and space. This should be exciting!

Afterward and weather permitting, the roof-top Observatory will open for visitors to view the night sky through the 16-inch Meade telescope. 

In the case of inclement weather/snow, we will reschedule this outing for Friday, March 16th (same time).
