A Sky Safari at Baldpate Mountain


Join The Amateur Astronomers Association of Princeton for an evening of sky gazing. The evening will start off with an indoor presentation by Rex Parker to discuss the night sky. If weather permits, participants will be led outside to see objects such as The Moon, constellations, planets, nebulae and galaxies. Telescopes will be set up on the patio of Strawberry Mansion for participants. If the skies are cloudy, the event will still take place with a more extensive presentation.
