Saturday, June 1st: Free Stargazing in Brooklyn Bridge Park

From the Earth to the Sky: World Science Festival
Brooklyn Bridge Park, Pier 1, Brooklyn
8pm
Free

“Dance” under the stars and join professional and amateur astronomers for a free evening of urban stargazing. It’s an outdoor party beneath the Brooklyn Bridge and the twinkling canvas of the night sky, and a night to explore and discover the vast wonders of the cosmos.

Bring your telescope if you have one, or use one of the dozens we’ll have on hand. Enjoy conversations with leading astronomers and live music to celebrate the astrological event “The Dance of the Planets,” at this communal stargazing experience.

The festivities will feature astronomy groups from around the Tri-State Area, family-friendly activities, twilight sailing of the Schooner Mystic Whaler, refreshments, and more.
