6:00 PM - 8:30 PM
Enjoy a night among the stars! Join us at TMSC
for an out-of-this-world evening skygazing
from the top of Talcott Mountain!
Begin the evening under the 44 ft. dome in the
Captain Alan M. Bean Planetarium, where we'll learn
about the night sky and the Leonids Meteor Shower.
Afterwards, make sure you bundle up because we'll be heading outdoors for celestial viewing atop Talcott Mountain! With a wide array of telescopes at our disposal, we'll be looking for stars, planets (including Neptune & Uranus) and other celestial gems, including the Andromeda Galaxy -- an autumn classic.
RSVP Online or call 860.677.8571
Limited seating. RESERVATIONS RECOMMENDED.
PLEASE ARRIVE ON TIME! Late arrivals will not be allowed to enter the planetarium after the presentation begins at 6:15pm; they will, however, be able to participate in outdoor viewing with the group when the Planetarium program concludes.
*In case of inclement weather, Skygazing will be held Friday, Nov. 17th.
