Program Description

Event Details

Did you ever get to see the Moon, or another planet through a telescope? Have you ever gazed upon a cluster of stars, or a distant galaxy? Take a tour of our night sky with Bob Crelin and a team of professional telescope operators, and experience the many wonders of our celestial neighborhood. 

The 5 day-old crescent Moon will be a prominent sight to explore in the early Spring skies. We hope to get our last views of the solar system’s largest planet, Jupiter and a glimpse of the far more distant Uranus before they sink into the Western horizon shortly after dusk. Spring skies offer a chance to view some notable stars of various colors, star clusters, and possibly even a distant galaxy.      

Due to the event's location, children under the age of 12 are expected to stay with an adult for the entirety of the program.

This event will be postponed in the event of rain. The rain date is Saturday, May 11th.
