Telescope Training Night
Friday, April 4, 2014 from 8:00 PM to 10:00 PM (EDT)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Registration opens on Tuesday, March 4.
Need some help learning to use that new — or old — telescope you haven't quite figured out? Bring it to the Museum of Science on April 4, when experts from the Astronomy After Hours team will provide you with tips on how to set up and use it.
The event starts off indoors at 8:00 pm and then, weather permitting, moves to the roof of the garage, near the Museum's Gilliland Observatory.
This event is free thanks to the generosity of the Lowell Institute.
*Please note: We will accommodate up to 25 telescopes, but we can accomodate more than 1 person per telescope. When you register, please register for the number of telescopes in your party, not the number of people in your party. Thank you!
