It's a thrilling fun experience for all ages! Comments we hear most often while people look through our telescopes are, "Holy #/!", "OMG", "Is that real?"
With our huge powerful telescopes and expert personable astronomers, we guide you through a breathtaking experience you can't get from photos or screens.
You can actually "SEE" with your own eyes, high-power views of the ever-changing night sky. See the planets that are up...Jupiter, Saturn, Venus and Mars. The Moon is always amazing close up.
Where skies are dark enough we take you on a deep sky voyage of star clusters, star-forming regions of space, and even other galaxies far, far away!
