NY State Mathematics Exams – select schools participating in computer-based testing
May 1 – May 5 all-day

Schools administering the computer-based Math exam will be able to schedule testing for grades 3 – 8 on any days during this week.

Make-up dates: Monday, May 8 – Wednesday, May 10.

Observing at Fort Greene Park
May 1 @ 6:00 pm – 10:00 pm

The AAA holds public observing sessions on Monday evenings, once a month in the Fort Greene section of Brooklyn, timed to coincide with the appearance of the quarter to full moon.

We observe on the north side of Lafayette Avenue, just east of where it intersects with Fulton Street. The site is right across the street from a small triangle-shaped park, and for the present, at least, has an unobstructed view of the southern sky.

Since the Moon will be in the sky on the dates above, all stargazing sessions will begin shortly before sundown and go until 10:00 PM (or later if there are people waiting to look through our scopes).
