NYC EVENTS FOR JANUARY 2006

[part 1 of 2]

    The following astronomy activities in the commuting ring enclosing 
New York City are operated by various organizations. A few cultural 
items of special importance to City astronomers may be included. 
    Altho NYC Events confirms the listed items, they are subject to
change by their sponsors. Check with their contacts. For events which
missed NYC Events, check the NYSkies Yahoogroup forum. Join NYSkies by
sending a blank email to 'nysky-subscribe@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx'.
    Let the sponsor of an event you attend know that you learned of
its event thru NYC Events. You may ask for the next NYC Events thru
'nyskiesastronomy@xxxxxxxxxxxxx' if you didn't yet join the forum.
    All Hours are Eastern Standard Time.

New York transit strike
 ---------------------
    On Tuesday 20 December 2005 at 03:00 EST New York City went under 
a labor stoppage on its transit system. This included all subway and 
bus lines within the City, but not regional services that work the 
surrounds. The strike ended at 14:38 on the 22nd, but it took until 
the owl hours on the 23rd to restore full service. The city system 
moves about 7 million riders per weekday, fully one half of all 
transit riders in the United States. 
    The loss of transit severely or fatally damaged events from the 
20th thru the 22nd by blocking staff and audience from getting to 
them. Events beyond the City were deeply hindered by the radical 
shifts in road and rail circulation in adjustment to the strike. 
    It also disrupted the planning of events for January 2006 by 
adding to the normal yearend hassles of holidays and facility 
closings. While I verified the activities listed here, there may be 
others in January that will be announced later on short notice. 
    If an expected event is an 'XX Jan' entry, please check with its 
contacts for latest information. 

Lunar occultation of Pleiades
 ---------------------------
    On January 9th, Monday evening, the Moon passes over stars of the 
Pleiades cluster. As at issue time there are no announced observing 
sessions for this show. Astronomy centers may post news in early 
January. Please ask at your local center for viewing session.
