The Bardavon 1869 Opera House in Poughkeepsie usually features stars of the stage and airwaves, but this fall it’s celebrating the literal heavens. “SkyFest: Astronomy & the Arts” mixes astronomy-themed concerts, lectures by astronomer and Almanac Weekly’s “Night Sky” columnist Bob Berman and Al Nagler (an optics whiz who designed the visual simulator for the Apollo program), and art exhibits with actual stargazing expeditions, including the first Moon viewing on Walkway over the Hudson. It includes in its calendar of events – which commences with a Moon observation in the Smolen Observatory at SUNY-New Paltz on October 12 – astronomical phenomena, such as the full moon and several meteor showers. SkyFest ends with the approach of Comet ISON to the Sun at the end of November.
