      Astronomy After Hours (Weather Permitting)

      Did you know that the Museum offers our starry-eyed public a free evening full of astronomy-themed fun on weather-cooperative Fridays? Between 8:30 and 10:00 pm each Friday, weather-permitting, visit the Gilliland Observatory on the roof of the Museum's parking garage. On clear nights, you can view stars, planets, the Moon, and other astronomical phenomena. On cloudy nights, tour the inside of our Observatory, and participate in astronomy-related activities run by our knowledgeable staff. This program does not run on nights when the weather is inclement. For more details, and to find out if Astronomy After Hours is running on a given Friday, call our hotline, 617-589-0267. We update each Friday by 5:30 pm with the evening's plans. Astronomy After Hours runs seasonally, from the first Friday in March to the last Friday before Thanksgiving. Admission is free thanks to the generosity of the Lowell Institute (parking charges still apply).

      Cost: Free
