Visitors are invited to come to SkyWatch at Carnegie Science Center’s Henry Buhl, Jr. Planetarium & Observatory and get up-close and personal with amazing celestial objects. The evening begins with a virtual tour of the night sky in Buhl Planetarium. Afterward, visitors are welcome to enjoy additional planetarium programs, and if the skies are clear, head up to the observatory! Spot Saturn’s rings or details on the lunar surface through the 16-inch Meade LX200 Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope, and chat with a team of expert stargazers.
The next SkyWatch will be held on Saturday, April 22, at 7:00 pm and again at 9:00 pm. Come early, or come late, as your schedule permits. SkyWatch happens rain or shine. Are you an astronomy expert? Bring your own, fully-assembled telescope to share with others, and visit SkyWatch for free! For more information, visit the Buhl Planetarium SkyWatch webpage.
