Brooklyn Bridge Park lights up the night’s sky with high-tech interactive and stargazing activities during this year’s World Science Festival. Step up to a telescope for an up-close look at the moon, Jupiter, and beyond. Then, take part in UP! Umbrella Project, a participatory experience created by Pilobolus in collaboration with MIT Distributed Robotics. Armed with an LED-lighted umbrella, create your own exploding stars and constellations, along with physicists and astronomers in a larger-than-life celebration of our universe. Astronaut Yvonne Cagle will be on hand to sign autographs. And Bill Nye will also be at the stargazing event…

The event will take place at Pier 1 on Saturday, June 3rd from 7 to 11 pm. STARGAZING IN BROOKLYN BRIDGE PARK is FREE and open to the public.
