Come to the Buhl Planetarium and Observatory to explore the evening sky during the July SkyWatch. The evening begins with a virtual tour of the night sky in Buhl Planetarium. Afterward, visitors are welcome to enjoy additional planetarium programs. If the skies are clear, you will head up to the observatory. Gaze at the sky through the 16-inch Meade LX200 Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope, and chat with a team of expert stargazers.
The July SkyWatch program includes a rare chance to get up close and personal with the Red Planet! Mars will be the closest it’s been to Earth since 2003. In addition to amazing views of Mars, visitors can expect to see Jupiter and Saturn.
Skywatch will be presented on Friday, July 27 at 8:00 pm, and again at 10:00 pm, at Buhl Planetarium and Observatory at Carnegie Science Center. Participants should meet on the first floor of Carnegie Science Center. SkyWatch happens rain or shine. For more details, visit the SkyWatch event page.
