Due to forecasts for overcast conditions with a chance of light rain, the Frosty Drew Observatory and Science Center will stay closed tonight. We hope you have a fantastic New Year's celebration and we will see you in the New Year, starting with our Quadrantid Meteor Shower event on January 3, 2022. Have a fantastic New Year from all the astro-geeks at Frosty Drew!
On New Years Eve, Frosty Drew Observatory will open from 7:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. for a quick window of stargazing to help ring in the New Year with views of the beautiful night sky over Ninigret Park. On the list will be Uranus, Albireo, the Orion Nebula, and possibly a comet.
Additionally, the Town of Charlestown will be hosting the annual New Years Eve bonfire in the park starting at 4:30 p.m. What a great way to start off your night of year-end frivolities with a toasty bonfire and stunning celestial views under the beautiful skies of Ninigret Park.
