Come and see our new observatory. The observatory is home to the 20-inch reflecting telescope known as Goliath. The observatory will be used during our upcoming public observing nights.

During the open house, we will be holding two planetarium shows. The planetarium’s first presentations since the start of the COVID Pandemic.

Other activities will include a Nature Scavenger Hunt and Hike; Rocket launches; Science Explorations; Discovering, Experimenting, Exploring w/ Camp Invention; Shell Education Exhibits; Bottle Rockets; other Exhibits & Demonstrations; and a grilled lunch.

Everyone who attends will receive a free sky map and a list of great astronomy apps for your phone.
