Stargazing Night at Mountain Lakes House

August 7, 2019, 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

The library is teaming up with several organizations for a night of stargazing on the lawn of Mountain Lakes House. The Amateur Astronomers Association of Princeton and the Department of Astrophysical Sciences will bring telescopes for all to share and several astronomers will be on hand to  guide participants in finding celestial objects visible with the naked eye. The Friends of Princeton Open Space will also be at the event to guide young naturalists on short walks to listen to the sounds of the night. Cookies and lemonade will be provided by the library.

Please bring a blanket or lawn chair (and a picnic if you’d like). Restrooms will be open in the Mountain Lake House throughout the evening. Gather starting at 7:30 p.m. and enjoy an evening for all ages in the great outdoors.

Presented in partnership with Friends of Princeton Open Space, AAAP and Princeton University.
