Talcott Mountain Science Center Skygazing Event

May 17 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Skygazing on Talcott Mountain

Arrive on the Talcott Mountain Science Center campus and catch a glimpse of the 
colorful sky from the top of Talcott Mountain. 
As we wait for the stars to shine, we’ll head into the 
Captain Alan M. Bean Planetarium to learn about the night 
sky – including the stories behind the stars and myriad of 
constellations that virtually create pictures in the sky. 
Finally, we’ll head outdoors for celestial viewing atop Talcott Mountain.

 With a wide array of telescopes at our disposal, 
we’ll be looking for stars, planets (including 
Venus) and other celestial gems including Ursa Major, Gemini and other celestial gems!

Begin the evening under the 44 ft. dome in the Captain Alan M. Bean Planetarium, where we’ll learn about the night sky, including the stories behind the stars and the myriad of constellations that man has created by virtually connecting these points of light to create pictures in the sky. Afterwards, we’ll enjoy nice, dark skies and head outdoors for celestial viewing atop Talcott Mountain! With a wide array of telescopes at our disposal, we’€ll be looking for stars, planets (including Venus), constellations–including Ursa Major and Gemini–and other celestial gems!
