Are you an early bird? Join us for a morning of stargazing as you’ve never seen before! You will have the opportunity to view the moon, planets and stars through our 34″ diameter Sam Scope, as well as our smaller planetary telescope. With the assistance of our observatory manager, up to 20 people will spend two hours viewing and learning about the dark skies.
Enjoy coffee and doughnuts while viewing planets, galaxies, nebulae and star clusters.
