Free Telescopic Observing Night on Wellesley Island

The Sci-Tech Center of Northern New York is a section 501(c)(3) corporation established in 1983 to help the public gain a better understanding of Science and Technology. This is done through participatory exhibits and programs in various scientific disciplines.

Sci-Tech invites the public to a free observing session on Wellesley Island. The telescopic observing night will be held at 9 p.m. on Monday, August 28, on the lawn near the gazebo, behind the library at Thousand Island Park at 42743 St. Lawrence Avenue, Thousand Island Park, NY.

Telescopes will be set up to view the moon, and Sci-Tech staff will be there to lend a hand. The highlights of the evening will be a spectacular view of the moon and the planet Saturn with its rings.

In the event of overcast skies and poor weather, the astronomy night will be canceled, and a message will be placed on the Sci-Tech astronomy telephone line at 315-788-2738.
