MUSIC AND ASTRONOMY UNDER THE STARS (July 15-Aug. 20, Multiple Locations)

(First event on July 15 in Washington, DC)

Dr. Donald Lubowich, Coordinator of the Astronomy Outreach Program at Hofstra University, will give concertgoers a glimpse of the heavens this summer throughout Long Island, in New York City, at the Tanglewood Music Festival, and on the National Mall in Washington, DC. Sponsored by a NASA grant, the star-gazing will include telescope observations of the sun prior to the concerts and of the moon, planets, stars, and nebulae after the events, combined with a multimedia astronomy presentation. The Amateur Observers’ Society of New York is a partner with this program.

The first event in July will be at 8:00 p.m. on July 15 at the U.S. Marine Corp. Band performance at the Sylvan Theater on the National Mall in Washington, DC. For latest information and a complete schedule, visit: http://www.hofstra.edu/Academics/Colleges/HCLAS/PHYSIC/physic_underthestars.html
