From an email:

“The National Science Foundation will be one of a few groups and a lot of amateur astronomers who gather by the Washington Monument for the 7th annual Astronomy Festival on the Mall. At the NSF booth alone, we plan to have some great resource materials and a few different kinds of telescopes. It is always a good time, and folks love the evening-centric affair, where they get the opportunity to explore the skies with a plethora of telescopes and experts (6-11 p.m. although it often starts as people see us setting up around 4:30 p.m.!).”

• Day/night close-up views of the Sun, Moon, Jupiter, Saturn and Mars with optical and radio telescopes

• Planetarium shows under a 25-foot dome

• Interactive hands-on activities presented by NASA and other science and educational organizations

• Astronomical image exhibits

Admission is free.

Organized by Dr. Donald Lubowich Coordinator of Astronomy Outreach Hofstra University
