Visitors are invited to come to the St. Patrick’s Day SkyWatch at the 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. If the skies are clear, you will 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 the team of expert stargazers.
St. Patrick’s Day SkyWatch will be held on Saturday, March 18, at 7:00 pm and again at 9:00 pm at Carnegie Science Center. 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!
