Eclipses & Navigation Lecture Featuring Stargazing Session

Eclipses & Navigation Lecture Featuring Stargazing Session

The H. Lee White Maritime Museum at Oswego is pleased to present “Eclipses and Navigation” by SUNY Oswego Professor Natalia Lewandowska as part of the museum’s History Lecture Series on Wednesday, April 24th at 6:00pm.  Dr. Lewandowska will present on this timely topic exploring the role eclipses have played in navigation through history.  The talk will be followed by a stargazing session enabling participants to view the night skies through varied astronomical equipment. 


Dr. Lewandowska is an Assistant Professor in the physics department at SUNY Oswego and serves as director of the Shineman Planetarium.  Her research focuses on highly magnetized and quickly rotating neutron stars, known as pulsars.  As an observational astronomer, she uses data taken with various telescopes – both ground and space-based – and is a member of the NANOGrav and the NICER Collaboration working with the radio, X-ray, and gamma-ray data of pulsars.  Her passion for educational outreach led to her becoming the project director for the Pulsar Science Collaborative (PSC), which is an educational outreach project providing middle and high school students the opportunity to gain research experience using data taken from the Green Bank Telescope.


Join us as we continue our eclipse journey and take a look at our local night sky.  This event is free and open to the public.  The Maritime Museum and Treasure Chest Gift Shop are open Monday through Friday, 1-5 pm (10-5 in July & August), with special eclipse hours on Saturday and Sunday, April 6-7, 10-5pm.  For more information regarding this or other Maritime Museum programs, contact the Museum at (315) 342-0480  This program is sponsored in part by Brookfield Renewable U.S.
