20210924_184558-02.jpeg

Runs October 1st - December 31st

Jupiter and Saturn dominate the autumn skies as they spread farther from one another after a cosmic dance in December 2020. Venus hangs to the west, its shape changing as the planet's orbit moves between the Earth and Sun.
 
Our Sidewalk Astronomers will come to your home or camp, or meet you in a public park, and guide you on a personalized tour using our own telescopes and binoculars. Own a telescope? We encourage you to bring it out! Select the two-hour program to add an hour of activities that model the solar system, visualize cosmic geometry, and show you why curiosity has no limit.
 
Great for families & adult groups.

Please see surcharge notice at the end of each section for travel & large group pricing.
