About this event

Group for the East End and Custer Institute and Observatory invite you to explore and learn about the North Fork's dark skies on the beach at Sound View Greenport. Join us for this unique opportunity!

With the sand beneath your feet on the beautiful Long Island Sound, catch a glimpse of Nebulae, Galaxies and other deep sky objects visible this season in a guided tour of the night sky using powerful telescopes. In addition to learning about our universe, hear about the amazing local wildlife that we share our night skies with and how we can help protect them. From owls to bats to moths, the night comes alive!

Custer Institute and Observatory is Long Island’s oldest public observatory (est. 1927), located on Main Bayview Rd in Southold, beneath some of Long Island's darkest skies. Group for the East End is a local environmental organization focused on education, advocacy and conservation of Long Island’s East End.
