We are excited to embark on an Astronomy Workshop Series based on the interests and requests of our Project Stewardship program participants!
We will begin this month with a night of observation with Amateur Observers’ Society of New York (AOSNY) to identify celestial properties within the Spring night sky and skygazing opportunities with member telescopes of all types and sizes enabling us to pursue our astronomy interests. AOSNY was established in 1965 as a means for astronomy enthusiasts of all ages to meet together, provide astronomy resources and educate the public. They offer numerous stargazing activities and are involved with reducing the light pollution problem on Long Island and throughout NYS.
During Summer at the Sangha, will offer an Introduction to Astronomy and Cosmology based on the scientific developments of cultures around the world and their application to humanities lived experiences past and present to continue the learning on this fascinating range of topics and how the stars and planets have provided guidance in so many ways.
In September, we are happy to welcome the Astronomical Society of Long Island (ASLI) to provide us with insights revolving around telescopic technology and an observation of the moon, Jupiter and Saturn which can only be seen during the Fall season. ASLI are a diverse group of amateur astronomers who enjoy learning about the night sky, and enjoy helping others of all ages and experience levels who want to know how to begin in this wonderful hobby.
