Yes, you CAN see stars in New York City!

Through the end of  November join us as we team with the Amateur Astronomers Association (AAA) of New York for Astronomy on the High Line, each Tuesday at dusk. Come view the night sky using the AAA’s high-powered telescopes, and get a lesson from the experts on the celestial wonders of the fall night sky.

The program takes place south of the Standard, near the Gansevoort entrance. Come gawk at the moon and Jupiter among other celestial attractions. Telescopes will be set up from dusk to 9:30 PM. In the event of a cancellation due to visibility, the AAA will update their Web site by noon on Tuesdays.

After the jump, more photos from astronomy enthusiast Albert Dépas, taken on October 13.
