After an afternoon of rocket launches, join Penn Dixie astronomers for an evening of stargazing. Our astronomers will map the night sky — including stars, planets, constellations, and deep space objects — for you using a variety of telescopes and specialized equipment. Guests are encouraged to bring lawn chairs, warm clothing, blankets, and food/beverages. We’ll have plenty of telescopes, but you can bring yours along, too, if you’d like some expert advice.

Rocketry portion is included with admission and FREE for members. Stargazing is $4 per person and FREE for members and daytime guests. No registration needed. All ages welcome.
