Hamptons Observatory, and co-host South Fork Natural History Museum (SoFo), are pleased to present a free, virtual lecture by Hamptons Observatory’s Senior Educator and NASA Solar System Ambassador, William Francis Taylor.

Each Spring, we see nature’s changes all around us as trees blossom, birds migrate, and animals revive from winter’s slumber. The origin of all these changes is up in the sky, as the Sun returns to the northern hemisphere, making our days longer and warmer. We’ll explore the way this happens and the ceremonies people celebrate to mark the beginning of Spring. We will also find out about the planets, constellations and meteor showers visible during this season, as well as hear the latest news about the James Webb Space Telescope.

Hamptons Observatory Senior Educator, William Francis Taylor, has been a NASA/JPL Solar System Ambassador since 2014, lecturing about the universe around us and sharing his love of the heavens by giving guided tours of the sky through telescopes. He is a local tutor and a life-long East End resident.
Hamptons Observatory would like to thank the South Fork Natural History Museum (SoFo) for their kind collaboration, and William Francis Taylor for sharing his expertise.
