AoT NYC at Brooklyn Public Library
October 25, 2022 @ 5:30 PM - 8:00 PM EDTFree
Join Astronomy on Tap NYC and the Amateur Astronomer Association for a night of fright, a tsunami of zombies, a cauldron of Aldeberans, and telescopes balanced precariously on tightropes*. Hosted by AoT regular, Brian Levine (he/him), join us for a night of astounding astronomy at the Brooklyn Public Library’s Greenpoint branch for “Spooky Science!” Astronomy night!
The evening will include an introduction to the library’s community astronomy art exhibit and will feature talks from two astronomy professionals, games (with prizes!) and telescope viewing on the roof (weather-permitting). The event is meant for those age 18 and above. There will not be alcohol served at the event, but it may not be appropriate for children.
Registration is required and will be on the library’s site.
5:30 doors open, first game begins, and please check out the exhibit!
