Our community programs are suitable for all ages. Using the large, world-class refractor telescope, depending on what is in the sky at the time, vistors may see:

  • the moon
  • planets
  • asteroids
  • comets
  • multiple stars
  • star clusters
  • nebulae
  • galaxies and more

Community programs are facilitated by Tom Whitney of the Astronomy Association.
