The Lackawanna Astronomical Society will celebrate Astronomy Day at the Thomas G. Cupillari ’60 Astronomical Observatory. Gates open at 6:00 p.m. and admission is FREE. There will be displays, solar and night-time viewing through telescopes of all sizes, demonstrations, and live presentations by LAS members. Activities are for all ages, so bring the family and spend the evening looking up and learning about the Moon, stars and far-out objects in the cosmos. Activities can be held indoors, except for the visual viewing, in case of inclement weather. For more information about this event email: LAS.AstroDay@gmail.com.
The Observatory is located at the intersection of Route 107 and Hack Road in Fleetville, a short distance from the College’s main campus. It is approximately two miles west on Route 107 from Interstate 81 exit 202 and approximately two mile east of Fleetville on Route 107. Once visitors turn onto Hack Road, the Observatory is almost immediately to the left.
