SCRLC Webinar: Meet Regional Observatories and Science Organizations

February 12 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EST

Join us to meet a few observatories and science organizations from around SCRLC’s 14-county region. Find out what they are doing—and how you might engage.

The eclipse is a few-hours event, but the observatories and science organizations provide on-going involvement and nurture a love of astronomy and science. This is an opportunity to engage and to spark ideas for astronomical programming at your library.

All library staff and science educators are invited to these presentations and CTLE certificates are available.

Joining us:

Andrew (Drew) Deskur, Director of the Kopernik Observatory & Science Center, Binghamton/Vestal, will provide webinar participants with information about observatory programs (their observatory is considered one of the best-sited and best equipped public observatories in the Northeast US!)—and what they are doing for the eclipse.

The Eileen M. Collins Observatory, located at Corning Community College, provides monthly viewing sessions for the public and is home to the Elmira-Corning Astronomical Society. Founding member Dennis O’Connell will join us to tell us more!

Dr. Joshua Thomas, Assistant Professor of Astronomy and Director of Alfred University’s Stull Observatory, will discuss their Observatory, resources, and public observing nights.

Ali Jackson, Director of Programs & Partnerships at Ithaca’s Sciencecenter will share some of the Sciencecenter’s activities involving the upcoming eclipse.

This program is part of SCRLC’s Moon Mondays: Get Ready for the Great 2024 Total Eclipse, which is supported in part by the American Astronomical Society’s Jay M. Pasachoff Solar Eclipse Mini-Grants Program.
