Event Details

Come to the Museum of Science to learn to use that new — or that old — telescope you've never quite figured out. Bring your device with you and let our Stargazing at the Observatory team offer tips on setting it up and using it. Spend some time indoors and then move to the Gilliland Observatory on the roof of the garage.

The event takes place Friday January 20, 8:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m., weather permitting. Inclement weather date is the following Friday, January 27.

To confirm, please call the Gilliland Observatory hotline, 617-589-0267, which is updated at 5:30 p.m. on Friday nights.

Admittance is free thanks to the generosity of the Lowell Institute (parking charges still apply).
