Stargazing on the High Line

Every Tuesday from sunset to 30 minutes before the park closes
On the High Line at 13th Street

Head to the High Line each Tuesday night for a walk along the park and a chance to take a closer look at the stars. Peer through high-powered telescopes provided by the knowledgeable members of the Amateur Astronomers Association to see rare celestial sights.

No experience is necessary and telescopes will be provided between sunset and park closure.

This High Line program is free and open to visitors of all ages. No RSVP is required. Stargazing is offered every Tuesday from April 4, 2023, to October 31, 2023.

Stargazing on the High Line is subject to cancellation due to overcast conditions or inclement weather. If a stargazing session needs to be canceled, we’ll post on @highlinenyc’s Twitter feed by 3pm on the day of the event.

Here’s a taste of what to expect:

About The Amateur Astronomers Association:

The Amateur Astronomers Association was organized in 1927 to promote the study of astronomy, by offering free night sky and solar observing, weather permitting.

In addition to their sidewalk outreach, they provide economical classes in astronomy to members, sponsor free lectures at the American Museum of Natural History, visit NYC schools at no charge to teach kids about our universe, and produce our own newsletter, Eyepiece. Lastly, they offer a podcast, AAA Sky, available on all popular podcast platforms.

The Amateur Astronomers Association has been hosting weekly observing sessions on the High Line since 2009.
