LATE NIGHT AT THE OBSERVATORY

Friday May 16
From 10:30 pm-12:00 am

Can’t sleep? Looking for a unique Friday night out? Come see what the Observatory is like after hours - long after the “early crowd” has gone home. You'll get to use the oldest big telescope in the U.S. to view astronomical objects that are not visible until late at night (weather permitting). Get a sneak preview of the next season’s planets and stars a month or two ahead of everyone else. Plus, zoom in on a late-rising moon, or watch the whole sky for a meteor shower or satellite passes. Each night is different and special!

These programs are recommended for adults only. If the weather does not permit viewing, we’ll have fun with some of the crazy science experiments and show you around the Observatory.

Admission is $10 per person

To make reservations please call 513-321-5186.
