There’s an exciting event coming to New York City on May 27–31, 2015: The five-day celebration of science known as the World Science Festival will host hundreds of thousands flocking to the Big Apple. Astronomy magazine, our sister publication Discover magazine, our close friends and partners at Celestron, and the citizen-science group SciStarter will all join together to help make the World Science Festival an unforgettable event.

I will be on hand as will Discover’s Editor-in-Chief Steve George. The folks from Celestron will collaborate with Astronomy to put on a huge public star party Saturday, May 30, at Brooklyn Bridge Park in lower Manhattan. More details on this event will be coming soon.

We will also participate in many of the other events going on through the five days of the World Science Festival. Darlene Cavalier, contributing editor of Discover, citizen science activist with SciStarter, and head of the Science Cheerleader organization, will be on hand to help us celebrate, too.

Stay tuned for more details. We’ll see you in New York in late May.
