Star gazing at Lincoln Center
If you think you can’t spot stars in the city, prepare to be proven wrong. Saturn’s rings and the burning nucleolus of falling stars and other celestial wonders can be yours to witness this month when The Amateur Astronomers Association sets up its high-powered telescopes on the plaza by the fountain at Lincoln Center. Every Friday and Saturday through the end of July, take a look at the planets and moon and other space specimens. Gazing begins at sunset and continues through 11pm.
Check out the May observing schedule below so you can plan your visit. It’s helpful to remember that the time of the Friday sunset is in brackets, arrive any time after the sunset and you’re in for a treat. Bonus: it’s free of charge!
