Friday (Apr. 16) 9:00 pm – 11:00 pm

Orion, which is located on the celestial equator, is one of the most prominent and recognizable constellations in the sky and can be seen throughout the world. Come on an adventure through the Orion constellation at the Schoolyard Observatory. We will explore the unique stars that make up the Orion constellation and discover other wonders within as we take turns observing through our 16-inch telescope.

Between individual views in the observatory dome, receive a guided sky tour standing outside under the stars to appreciate the broader picture of what you see through the telescope.

Each 2-hour session will be confirmed by email at least 24 hours before scheduled according to the cloud cover forecast (< 30%). Tickets are transferable for any observatory nightly event in cases of poor weather conditions.
