See the night sky and learn about what you're really looking at from professionals with professional equipment.

What you'll see:

Constellations, the Moon, Planets, Star Clusters, Double Stars, Nebulae, Galaxies, and more.

Special Sightings:

  • The Moon - Sept 28, Oct 26, Nov 30
  • Saturn and its moons - Month of September
  • Uranus, Neptune and the Andromeda Galaxy - October - December
  • Summer Triangle and Ring and Dumbbell Nebulaes
  • Perseus double cluster and M13/15/92 globular clusters

Our telescopes cannot see through clouds! Public Telescope Nights will be cancelled if the weather is cloudy, cold (<20 F), or very windy. It's considered "clear" if you can see the moon or at least 10 stars clearly.
