Guided telescope viewing

(Sky)gaze is a component of Hope Sandrow’s project, Genius Loci, a series of site-specific events and projects that evoke “the spirit of place.” (Sky)gaze refers to the ancient practice of seeking information about one’s environment by observing the sky.

The series includes guided telescope viewings of the sun, moon, and celestial bodies, offered in collaboration with the Montauk Observatory, Suffolk County Community College, and Dark Skies Society, (under the direction of astronomers Sean Tvelia and Dr. Mike Inglis, and dark sky advocate Susan Harder).
