Downing Planetarium

Star Gazing 


When the Downing Planetarium is open for public shows on a Friday night (view schedule) and the weather is permitting, we use our telescope to star gaze and look at celestial objects.

Come and join us as we look at our star systems, planets, nebulae, and star clusters. We will assist you in finding what you want to see and will be out in front of the planetarium from dusk - 8:00 p.m.
