Astronomy Nights

A solar eclipse viewed through Penn Dixie telescopes.

Spend an evening at Penn Dixie for an out-of-this-world experience!
Our astronomy experts will be your guide to the night sky at Penn Dixie. You may bring along your own telescope or are welcome to use one of the telescopes provided for the evening. Admission to these evening events is $4; Penn Dixie members attend for free. Please note that programs may be canceled due to cloud cover or rainy conditions at the site.

Thinking about purchasing a telescope? This telescope guide offers some great suggestions from Penn Dixie astronomer Ernie Jacobs. You can also download our Astronomy Night guide — also prepared by Ernie Jacobs — to learn more about our programs.
