Battery Park City, Manhattan

wagnerparkphotoWe meet at Wagner Park, just below Battery Park City at the southern tip of Manhattan.  The park is wedged between historic Battery Park and the old marine fire house (now a restaurant) to its east, and the Museum of Jewish Heritage to its north.  It has unobstructed views to the south and west, and nearly unobstructed views to the east.

This is a new observing site for the AAA and we are still working on the schedule of dates for this year.

We are planning a “dry-run” at Wagner Park on Thursday, May 19, starting at dusk.  The 13-day old Moon and Jupiter will be out and we may catch Saturn and Mars in the late evening in the southeastern sky.  All are welcome to join us.
