In Conjunction with King and Country
With Summer Ash of Columbia Astronomy Public Outreach

Invoking Shakespeare’s references to the celestial—“Ah, Richard, with the eyes of heavy mind; I see thy glory like a shooting star” (Richard II)—Columbia Astronomy Public Outreach director Summer Ash leads this guided tour of the stars. Telescopes will be set up and Ash and her team of astronomers will be on hand to answer questions. Admission each evening is on a continual first-come, first-served basis. This event is weather permitting.
