Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, these scheduled programs have been cancelled until further notice. We will continue to plan and prepare for when we can all meet again in person! Till then, please enjoy our online programming on YouTube!.

These evenings are intended for families with school-age children. The program provides an age-appropriate talk where we invite questions and audience participation to learn about exciting discoveries and celestial events. The talk is followed by a demonstration of the 74” telescope with viewing through this and other smaller telescopes as weather permits, craft activities & a simulation of the nighttime sky in our SkyLab.
