Fox Park Observatory Events

Public observation nights and solar viewing days are suitable for people of all ages. Program fee is $2/person or $5/family payable on site. The Observatory is an open air observatory so please dress appropriately for the weather, bring mosquito protection, and wear sturdy footwear for the 200 yard walk to the observatory. Local area astronomers will be on hand to answer questions about the night sky and solar viewing.

Our most up to date information is posted on our Facebook page, where we can post last minute weather updates.
