Bring Dad to the Observatory for the program: Celestial Favorites. Dad (or Granddad) receives free admission when accompanied by a paying child. (Limit one free admission per paying child.) During this program Observatory guests will get to use our big telescope to observe Mars, Jupiter or Saturn, a cluster of stars and a "nearby" galaxy plus Observatory visitors will get to vote on one additional object to observe from a list of objects available in the night sky.

Our public programs are presented every Friday and Saturday evening throughout the year. The Observatory is open from 9:00 to 11:00 p.m. during the months of May through August.
