Frosty Drew Observatory is open every Friday for stargazing through 16″ and 10″ telescopes. When skies are overcast, there is a program in Sky Theatre
They open their dome and telescopes to the public free of charge shortly after dusk in the summer or at 6 p.m. in the winter.
“See the stars, distant galaxies, shining nebulae, the planets and their moons, and maybe a passing comet through our big telescope every clear Friday night. We open as soon after dusk as possible allowing for the season. We usually remain open till everybody leaves or the astronomers have geeked out enough to call it a night.“
