Freeport Community Library – Ara Jerahian Astrophotography Art Exhibit

May 1 - May 31

Make sure to swing by Freeport Community Library during the month of May to catch Ara Jerahian’s astrophotography exhibit, Alter to the Stars.

Living most of his teenage and adult life in light polluted Los Angeles and San Francisco, Jerahian moved to Maine in 2015 with his family and rekindled his love of astronomy with the encouragement of his loving wife. In 2018, Ara started taking pictures of the hidden jewels of our night sky and, on July 3, 2020, NASA selected one of his photographs as the Astronomy Photograph of the Day from the tens of thousands of amateur and professional astrophotography submissions NASA receives each day.
The pieces on display at FCL will be a collection of astrophotographs taken from Jerahian’s home observatory in Cape Elizabeth. They will feature objects thousands of light years away within our galaxy, as well as other galaxies themselves millions of light years away!
Ara Jerahian is one of the Directors of the Southern Maine Astronomers and is actively involved in public outreach, fighting light pollution and preserving our dark Maine skies.

This event is free and open to the public. For questions or directions to the library, call 207-865-3307.
