Hofstra Observatory presents Halloween Stars
Come view the stars on Halloween night. Hofstra University's "Stars on Sundays" series allows participants to use telescopes for star-gazing while learning about the universe from college astronomers. Hofstra invites kids of all ages to view, Jupiter, Saturn, Mars, Venus, star clusters, nebulae, & double stars with telescopes from the Hofstra Observatory, 4th floor, Berliner Hall, California Ave. & Huntington Place, S. of Hempstead Turnpike. Program begins with a presentation about the sky in Room 117. Attendance is limited to 150 people per event.
Please note: While the event is free, the number of participants is limited, and signing-up does not guarantee attendance. You will be notified in the event we reach our limit.
The Hofstra Observatory, partially supported by a grant from the National Science Foundation, includes Celestron telescopes and computerized CCD cameras. The Observatory is located on the roof of Herman A. Berliner Hall (Chemistry and Physics Building).
