Stargazing Resources

Stargazing sessions are supported by the Amateur Astronomers Association of New York.


Stargazing in an urban environment might sound crazy, and to a large extent, it is. But people live in cities, and are still interested in Astronomy. The Amateur Astronomers Association of New York goes further than any other orgazination in the USA to help curious urbanites to engage their wonder of the night sky. As a Board Member, I try to help show off the night sky right in my backyard, in wonderful Inwood Hill Park. Join me! I'm sure you'll be as crazy about it as I am.
