Free to the public! Explore the night sky through powerful telescopes with guidance from members of the Chester County Astronomical Society. All ages are welcome!
NOTE: If it’s cloudy, check this page a few hours before the event to see if it will be held. Partial clouds are OK, but full cloud cover or rain may require cancellation.
WHAT IS A SKY TOUR?: Several high-optic telescopes will be set up for viewing, and astronomers will use green laser lights to point out celestial bodies in the night sky. Learn how to identify planets, their moons, nebulae, the constellations, satellites and other heavenly bodies.
WHAT TO BRING: Dress for the weather. Bring a small flashlight (avoid light pollution), if you have one.
