Activities to Discover


We will start by looking at the telescopes learning more about what they do and how they work. And if the weather is on our side, we may get to see the moon as it comes up.

In the event of adverse weather, we will go inside where there will be a chance to look and hold some meteorites, and still look and learn about the telescopes.
