Program Description

Join us for our newest program—a night of stargazing with binoculars! A good pair of binoculars (provided) and your eyes are all that you need to explore the night sky. Our staff will teach you how to use binoculars, and give you a binocular-tour of the evening sky. View planets, galaxies, star clusters, nebulae, and more! Learn how to navigate the night sky by using star charts. With a good pair of binoculars, you will be amazed at what you can see.

We provide the binoculars and star charts, all you do is show up. 

Bring your blanket and/or lounge chair.
