The Clay Center for Science and Technology is a state-of-the-art astronomical observatory and learning center.
The observatory has seven research-grade telescopes, sophisticated computer and science laboratories, a multi-media lecture hall, classrooms, dining, and meeting spaces, and a solar energy roof deck.
Both a facility of Dexter Southfield and a local and international community resource, it includes science and music laboratories, classrooms, dining rooms, a lecture hall, and an astronomical observatory.
Public Telescope Nights
The public is invited to join the Dexter Southfield community for an evening of viewing at the Clay Center Observatory. The Observatory will open on Wednesday evenings, weather permitting.
Depending on conditions and season, we will point the telescope toward a variety of planets, the Moon, and stars. Visitors also can enjoy a panoramic view of greater Boston from the observation decks, and walk among the constellations on the stars court. Children are welcome, but must remain with parents at all times.
Please register in advance for this event. This will help us to make the experience as enjoyable as possible for everyone. If the weather is rainy or overcast, we will not open. If you have any questions about the telescope nights, the weather, bringing groups, or future telescope nights, call 617-751-3409 one hour before the event.
