Starfest: A Festival of the Stars in the Sheep Meadow
Although New York probably has enough earthly stars to fill the Milky Way, what I’m referring to is a festival in Central Park where ordinary people can look at the stars in the night sky.
It’s been an event at the Sheep Meadow since the early 1990s (the last festival was held in mid-October, 2015).
In my young adult adventure book Central Park Story I have Christopher Middleton, my main character, go there with his girlfriend, Ashley Ferguson.
Unfortunately, seeing the Crab Nebula and the rings of Saturn wasn’t the only things that Ashley had in mind that night!
