We invite families to bring their tent and sleeping bags to camp out on the Observatory’s lawn for a special Night Under the Stars.
Check in and set up your tent any time after 8:00 PM. At 9:00 PM, join us for a tour, viewing the twilight planet Venus, and constellation stories around a campfire while the stars come out overhead. Then, the real stargazing begins, with views of Saturn, star clusters, and more through the Observatory’s historic telescope (weather permitting).
Retire to your tent as early or late as you want. For those who are too excited to sleep, we’ll view the Moon and more after midnight. The Observatory will remain open overnight, for all-night access to the bathrooms – and the telescope! Light breakfast (cereal, fruit, drinks, etc.) will be served 8:00-9:00 AM.
Reservations are required by calling 513-321-5186.
