In 2019, the International Astronomical Union (IAU) is celebrating its 100th anniversary. To commemorate this milestone, the IAU is organizing a year-long celebration to increase awareness of a century of astronomical discoveries as well as to support and improve the use of astronomy as a tool for education, development and diplomacy under the central theme "Under One Sky."
As its contribution to the celebration, the Adirondack Sky Center has partnered with the Tupper Arts Center, and will offer an art exhibit titled "Cosmic Images of the Wilderness Above - Astrophotography from the Adirondack Sky Center." On display for public viewing are photos taken by members and participants in our annual astrophotography conferences. Free and open to the public.
The Arts Center is located at 114 Park Street, Tupper Lake (map)
