Public Telescope Stargazing Nights at New England Sci-Tech
The public is invited to join the New England Sci-Tech community for an evening of astronomy at 16 Tech Circle, Natick.
Public Telescope Hours – Tuesday and Friday evenings 8:00–9:00 pm in the spring, summer, and fall, weather permitting. See website for occasional variations for astronomical events or special children's programs.
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 planetarium shows, 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, selfies with the R2D2 robot, operating the Mars robotic arm to pick up Mars rocks, and more.
Children are welcome, but must be supervised by parents at all times.
Tuesdays and Fridays 8:00-9:00 pm.
Open for public telescopes this fall through Dec 3, 2019.
Free (donations always appreciated)
