FUN FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY! Did you know that only 16 of the 39 Mars missions have been successful? Make it your mission to observe Mars, learn about constellations, and have fun at TMSC!
As we wait for the stars to shine, we'll head into the Captain Alan M. Bean Planetarium to learn about the night sky - including the stories behind the stars and myriad of constellations that virtually create pictures in the sky. Finally, we'll head outdoors to observe the waning gibbous moon, and the last glimpse of Mars before the summer!
With a campus built upon a former Nike Missile site -- tucked away high atop Talcott Mountain -- we have the advantage of a clear view over the Farmington Valley!
Join us at the Talcott Mountain Science Center for an upbeat and enlightening evening observing the night sky. With a wide array of telescopes at our disposal, you won’t want to miss this out-of-this-world experience!
$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 7:40pm; they will, however, be able to participate in outdoor viewing with the group when the planetarium program concludes.
