Night Skies in the Observatory
Join us for an evening of out-of-this-world astronomy activities hosted by Franklin Institute Chief Astronomer Derrick Pitts.
Build your own experience from any combination of planetarium shows, a live science talk on astronomy or space science, hands-on astronomy activities, and continuous telescopic observing all evening (weather permitting). The program is staffed with knowledgeable observers, and free star maps are provided.
Visit the cash bar in the 5th floor ‘Starlight Lounge’, make Night Vision Pins to take home with you, and check out live feeds form the International Space Station and the Mars Curiosity Rover with commentary from Franklin Institute Educators.
Stay tuned for more details. Each month features different activities, talks, and shows!
Tickets at $10 for the general public and $5 for members.
