Event description

Description

What makes the days shorter and the nights longer? What's the astronomical reason for the coolness in the air? We will explore the science of the sun and seasons, and also discuss the constellations, planets and other celestial objects that are visible in the fall sky, which we'll view (weather-permitting) through telescopes after the talk.


Montauk Observatory Senior Educator, William Francis Taylor, has been a NASA/JPL Solar System Ambassador, since 2014, lecturing about the universe around us and sharing his love of the heavens by giving guided tours of the sky through telescopes. He is a local tutor and a life-long East End resident.
