“Treasures of the Night Sky” Northern Lights and Astrophotos by Scott Nammacher at the Harrison Public Library

Harrison Council for the Arts presents “Treasures of the Night Skies” Northern Lights and Astrophotos by Scott Nammacher at the Harrison Public Library, 2 Bruce Avenue, Harrison, NY on view July 28 to August 17, 2018.

Scott recently photographed a spectacular show of the aurora borealis (northern lights) from Churchill, Manitoba, just south of the Arctic Circle.  The best of these will be shown at this show.

In addition, Scott will give a talk on his photographs on August 4 at 10:30am at the Library.  Weather permitting; he will set up a solar telescope for attendees to get amazing views of the sun.

Scott’s photographs are taken from his up-state observatory (Starmere) and two remotely operated observatories (one in Australia and the other in New Mexico).  He has been photographing nebulas, galaxies, along with cloud and gas regions, and more local solar system targets since the early 2000s.  He became more seriously involved after he designed and built his own fully automated observatory near Catskill, NY in late 2008.  He has shown earlier works at locations in the Hudson Valley area, including the Hudson Opera House in Hudson, NY and libraries around Westchester.  He has also given talks and presentations around the region on astrophotography.

Scott’s prints are created using a unique process that involves printing on a coated piece of thin aluminum, which enhances the color and vibrancy of the photos.  His website is starmere.smugmug.com, email: snammacher@msn.com.

The exhibit may be viewed Mondays and Wednesdays 9:30am to 9:00pm; Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays 9:30am to 5:30pm and Saturdays 9:30am to 12:30pm..  For info call the Library 914-835-0324 or see harrisonpl.org.
