more than just The stars

come out at night...

Night Presentation is approximately 90 minutes.

Astronomy Night and Day brings the stars, planets, moons and other celestial objects to your location. Our powerful telescope lets you and your group see hundreds of stellar objects close up.

Our Night Program takes your group on a tour of the heavens, pointing out the constellations, the planets, their moons, galaxies, and dying stars. Man-made satellites such as the International Space Station and Hubble Space Telescope are easy to locate if they orbit overhead.

You'll find out how spectroscopy has revolutionized astronomy and how it's used to look for life on other worlds. Spectroscopy is a scientific measurement technique, measuring light that is emitted, absorbed, or scattered by materials. Our equipment includes a special adapter used on the telescopes to introduce you to real time spectroscopy.
