Dudley Night Sky Adventure: Winter Sky & Dark Sky Objects
see details +
Explore the night sky and the Solstice! The Dudley Observatory, miSci and the Albany Area Amateur Astronomers are teaming up to offer monthly Night Sky Adventures at miSci to give all who are interested, an opportunity to practice their observational astronomy skills.  Lead by Astronomy Educator, Megan Norris and volunteers from the Albany Area Amateur Astronomers, we’ll practice identifying stars, constellations and dark sky objects both through scopes (weather permitting) and in the Suits-Bueche Planetarium. Hard to see Star Clusters and Nebulae will be easier to find on this new moon evening. Rain or shine.

$3 per person; $5 per family
