Telescope Training Night
Friday, January 20, 2012 from 8:00 PM to 10:00 PM (EST)
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).

Reaching 25,000 teens a year worldwide via the Intel Computer Clubhouse Network, the Museum also leads a 10-year, $41 million National Science Foundation-funded Nanoscale Informal Science Education Network of science museums. The Museum’s “Science Is an Activity” exhibit plan has been awarded many NSF grants and influenced science centers worldwide. Its National Center for Technological Literacy® aims to enhance knowledge of engineering and technology for people of all ages and inspire the next generation of engineers, inventors, and scientists. The Museum is ranked #3 by Parents Magazine in its list of the country’s “Ten Best Science Centers. For more information, visit mos.org.
