Hayden Special Event: Winter Telescope Party

Wednesday, December 21, 2016

Crowd outside of the Hayden Planetarium on a wintry night, telescope in the foreground.

Join Steve BeyerBrian Levine, and Ted Williams for a sneak peek at the celestial objects that appear in our winter sky. Begin the evening by learning the techniques of observation from inside the Hayden Planetarium Space Theater using its state-of-the-art Zeiss Mark IX Star Projector. Then, weather permitting, head out to the Arthur Ross Terrace, where you can sip hot chocolate as you look through telescopes with members of the Amateur Astronomers Association.

Note: This event is appropriate for adults and families.
