IT'S A GREAT TIME TO SEE THE PLANETS! Join TMSC staff on Friday, September 21* at 6:30 PM for an enlightening evening searching for stars and observing the night sky from the top of Talcott Mountain. It's an evening of fun for the whole family!
Begin the evening under the 44 ft. dome in the Captain Alan M. Bean Planetarium, where we'll learn all about the night sky. Afterward, we'll head outdoors for celestial viewing of the red planet and other celestial gems atop Talcott Mountain. With a wide array of telescopes at our disposal, we will also be looking at the moon and searching for stars and other planets, including Venus, Jupiter and Saturn. It's a great way to start the weekend!
*Due to the predicted cloud coverage, TMSC will be hosting only the planetarium portion of this Skygazing event; we do not anticipate being able to do any outdoor viewing utilizing our telescopes and observatories. We apologize for any inconvenience, but hope that you will still join us in our planetarium to learn about the stars, constellations and the Autumn Equinox. And, as a bonus, you'll also get to see the first image from the Parker Solar Probe!*
$8 General Admission/$5 TMSC Members
*PLEASE ARRIVE ON TIME! Late arrivals will not be allowed to enter the planetarium after the presentation begins at 6:45pm; they will, however, be able to participate in outdoor viewing with the group when the planetarium program concludes.
