“Stargazing In Upstate NY” For July 28 to August 4 Posted To newyorkupstate.com And syracuse.com

Greetings, fellow astrophiles!

This week’s “Stargazing In Upstate New York” article is up at syracuse.com and newyorkupstate.com.

We start the push for the solar eclipse on the 21st, including a list of scheduled events around the CNY area (and a bit beyond). The Southern Delta Aquariids are announced (with short notice) and a sneak preview mention of the Persieds is made (although the waning crescent on the night of the 12th is going to dull the quality of the shower this year).

Below is a list of scheduled lecture and observing opportunities around Upstate New York for the eclipse – this list will be reproduced in the following articles and will hopefully be added to as other locations announce events. If you know of an event not listed, please send an email with details. As always around here, we can only hope for clear skies!
