The Amateur Astronomy Association of New York held its annual Spring Starfest at Woodlawn Cemetery on Saturday night. More than 20 members (including myself) set up telescopes for people to look through, while guest speaker Jason Shilling Kendall (William Paterson University) presented a fascinating program on the solar system.
A bonus for me: a group of students and teachers from my son’s middle school attended. Apparently my son was there also, but he proved more elusive than Saturn’s C ring. I don’t think I caught sight of him.
Thank you to Woodlawn Conservancy for graciously hosting this event, and to the hundreds of guests who made it a special evening.
