Head to the Stamford Museum and Nature Center Observatory to explore the night sky, planets, stars, and more! Start by enjoying a presentation on Hubble Gotchu, followed by a visit to view the night sky through our 22-inch research telescope. The presentation portion of the program will be held rain or shine. This program is suitable for children ages 5 & older. Please call 203-977-6537 for weather updates in regards to telescope viewing.
Have you ever wondered why we have four seasons or why the moon goes through different phases? Learn why at the Ansonia Nature Center during a good old fashioned slide show and short lecture by “Bobcat” Carruthers and members of the New Haven Astronomical Society. Then, if weather permits, venture outside to view the night sky with the Astronomical Society’s high-tech telescopes. This program is free and begins at 6 p.m.; please pre-register by calling 203-736-1053.
