Stargazers Get a View of the Heavens at Custer Institute and Observatory

Stargazers attend the annual Astronomy Convention at the Custer Institute and Observatory in Southold.

 

By Video Journalist Waldo Cabrera

We take a tour of Long Island's oldest public observatory, the Custer Institute in Southold. The observatory was opened in 1927 by a group of amateur astronomers, and has been a non-profit educational corporation since 1942.

Stargazers can come and learn about astronomy through classes held at the institute and use the many telescopes to get a glimpse of the universe.
