This sixth annual Tanabata Festival is presented by the Amateur Astronomers Association (AAA) with the Japanese and Japanese-American communities in New York. This traditional Japanese summer festival is based on a legend of star-crossed lovers.

 

AAA members will provide the telescopes to show the public the night sky and relay the folk tale of the stars Altair and Vega.
