Statewide Astronomy Night

Enjoy indoor and outdoor activities at Longway Planetarium! Indoors, make your own take-home star finders! These will help you find constellations and sky objects on your own. You will also make solar system necklaces that demonstrate real scale distances to each planet in the solar system. Outside, both Longway and Seven Ponds Astronomy Club will provide telescopes for observing. You can bring your own telescope as well, and get help with learning how to use your telescope at home.
