Getting to Know the Sky with Hopewell Public Library

The Hopewell Public Library, culminating this year’s “A Universe of Stories” summer programs, will host an illustrated presentation summarizing what we know about the cosmic wonders overhead and how best to see them. “Getting to Know the Sky” is a half-hour non-technical introduction (for all ages) to astronomy by Victor Davis of the Amateur Astronomers Association of Princeton (AAAP). The event will start at 7pm on Wednesday, September 4, at the Hopewell Theater.

After the talk, weather permitting, AAAP members will be on-hand outside in the fields above Hopewell Borough Park with telescopes to show off celestial sights. Feel free to also bring your own telescope or binoculars. If the skies are clear, Jupiter and Saturn may be visible! Learn more about the Amateur Astronomers Association of Princeton at:

All Hopewell Public Library presentations are free and open to the public. The HPL Wednesday Night Out Series is held on the first Wednesday evening each month. Talks are often held at the Hopewell Theater, 5 S. Greenwood Ave. in Hopewell Borough. For more information, check the HPL website at, Facebook, or call the library at 609-466-1625.
