Rare Chance to See a Very Hot Planet

Register Online

Staring Lake Observatory

See the closest planet to the sun, then follow it up with a lunar photograph with your point-and-shoot camera or cellphone.
Cost: $7 per person

Astronomers: Paul Fusco and Ron Schmidt

If it is clear, we'll have the roof open and the telescope pointed up. Our astronomer will explain what you are seeing and answer questions.

If it is cloudy, we'll use the large screen LCD inside the center to learn how to find some of the same highlights from our own backyards. All events are rain or shine. Children must be accompanied by a registered adult. Please dress for the weather.

If you can't attend the event, watch a live video feed directly from the Staring Lake Observatory. There is also a video archive of past events.
