Depending on conditions and season, we will point our larger telescopes toward a variety of planets, the Moon, and stars.
Visitors also can borrow smaller “Starblast” telescopes to hunt sky objects on your own.
Depending on staff availability, we may offer inside activities as well, such as touching a rock from outer space (70 lb meteorite!), weighing yourself on the moon and planets, visiting the astronomy classroom, viewing the 3D astronomy displays, talking with the R2D2 robot, operating the Mars robotic arm to pick up Mars rocks, and more.
Children are welcome, but must remain with parents at all times.
The event is free, but we recommend a donation to help offset our expenses: $10 per family.
Always free for NE Sci-Tech members.
Free (donations always appreciated)
