CANCELED: Walkway @ Night:
STARWALK: Jupiter, the King of the Big Sky

May 12 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Thank you for your interest in our first STARWALK event. Unfortunately, Mother Nature is not cooperating and the forecast calls for a cloudy, rainy and unusually cold evening. Regrettably tonight’s STARWALK is CANCELED. We hope to see you – and better weather for the next MOONWALK on June 1!
If you enjoy our MOONWALK series, you’ll LOVE our new STARWALK series! View the wonders of the night sky from the Walkway, 212 feet above the Hudson River. With each STARWALK scheduled around unique occurrences in the celestial calendar, astronomy enthusiasts and novices alike can view and learn about a range of astronomical topics. Volunteers from local astronomical organizations and schools will be on hand to share their knowledge and expertise.

For the safety of all, bicycles, rollerblades, and skateboards are not permitted for this event. If you bring your furry friends along for the fun, all pets must be on a 4-foot non-retractable leash with a light up collar (glow sticks will be available while supplies last).

Note: No planned rain-date – event held even if cloudy. Lighting will be limited to preserve the sky, so please bring a flashlight.

Location: Walkway East (Poughkeepsie) and West (Highland) Entrances
