This viewing session will canceled if it is raining at the starting time.

Please take note: For safety and consideration to others, we ask that you refrain from using flash photography after dark. This includes cell phones. There are two reasons for this.

  1. Once a person's eyes are accustomed to the dark it takes several minutes for them to acclimate again. Eyes acclimated to the dark can see greater detail through our telescopes.
  2. A flash if seen directly through the eyepiece of a telescope could be blinding. While this blindness most likely will not be permanent, it is still quite painful.
If you don't know how to turn off your flash, we will be happy to assist you.

Thank you.
