BROOKLYN - Brooklyn residents looked to the skies Thursday at a stargazing event at Green-Wood Cemetery.

The Amateur Astronomers Association of New York set up high-powered telescopes at the cemetery's main entrance for residents to get a closer look at the skies.

Cemetery officials say it's one of the best spots to see stars in the city due to its lack of lights.
