Space Tours

Unfortunately we cannot offer this program in 2020.

Did you ever dream of stargazing with your own personal astronomer? Join us for a new out-of-this-world experience. Your group can experience a night of stargazing with a Penn Dixie astronomer. Your guide — a knowledgeable and experienced member of our  astronomy staff — will take you on a journey through the stars. 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.

During the two-hour guided space tour, you’ll see many objects in the night sky — both with and without a telescope. Your astronomer will also help you capture your own image of the night sky.

Since Space Tours are outdoors, we recommend appropriate footwear and seasonal dress in layers. Bookings require a minimum of two weeks advance notice. All tours will include an alternate rain date. Contact us to reserve your expedition today!
