“ AMERICA’S NIGHT OUT AGAINST CRIME AND TERRORISM”

On Tuesday August 2nd, 2016 neighborhoods throughout New Milford are being invited to join forces with thousands of communities nationwide for the 33rd Annual “National Night Out” crime and drug prevention event. “National Night Out” which is sponsored by the New Milford Police Department, Drug Alliance, and many local businesses and organizations will involve over 11,000 communities from all 50 states, U.S. territories, Canadian cities, and military bases around the world. In all, over 38 million people are expected to participate in “America’s Night Out Against Crime and Terrorism” on August 2nd.

New Milford will be hosting a GIANT town wide block party on Memorial Field, directly behind Borough Hall (930 River Rd). From 7pm to 10pm, residents in New Milford and across the nation are asked to lock their doors, turn on outside lights and spend the evening outside with neighbors and police. Among the highlights will be amusement rides, music, food vendors, law enforcement and emergency services displays, ice cream, face painting, dunk tank, displays from the Army, Navy, and Marines, and much more.

This is a night for America to stand together to promote awareness, safety, and neighborhood unity.

The William D. McDowell Observatory is now open. Free public viewing had resumed on Wednesday evenings, weather permitting. Observatory hours change with the seasons.

The state-of-the-art Observatory features a research-grade, Classical-Cassegrain telescope housed within a six-meter retractable dome with a 20-inch mirror and is capable of viewing objects millions of light years away. The Observatory is operated by astronomers from Bergen Community College.

The telescope has several special filters designed to help minimize the effects of the area’s light pollution. The precision instrument also includes specialized cameras to photograph various astronomical objects, a photometer to measure the brightness of stars and study how they vary over time, and a spectroscope to analyze wavelengths of light to determine the chemical composition of light-emitting objects.

Note: To access the observatory telescope, a visitor must be able to climb 25 steps in spiral formation.

Open Public Viewing Nights
Observatory’s 20-inch, research-grade telescope is open to the public free of charge on Wednesday evenings. The focus of each session depends on observing conditions, so check this website often for details and updates.

Viewing requires a clear sky, so the Observatory is closed on cloudy, rainy, and snowy nights. Please check this web-site for the most up-to-date information and announcements.

Weather permitting, the Observatory is open to the public every Wednesday from 8:30PM until 10:30PM.

Please check our Announcement section on the homepage for the Observatory’s operating status.
