Third Thursday Astronomy Night

Every 3rd Thursday of every month, the STEMcell Science Shop takes up their Celestron up on The Boxyard deck to see what we can see and become familiar with the telescopes. Everyone, regardless of skill level, is invited to come out to stargaze with us. For those just starting out, come and see just how simple and rewarding telescopes are to use. If you've got a telescope of your own, feel free to bring it out as well.

This is a weather-permitting event. If the weather looks uncooperative, we will cancel on this page at least several hours in advance.

Isn't there light pollution downtown?
Yes. Downtown isn't the most ideal area for stargazing, but we'll still be able to see the brighter objects in the sky as well as terrestrial objects. Plus you'll get to learn how to use the equipment before taking it out into the pitch black.
