Astronomy Day

While winters in New England mean shorter days, they also mean longer periods of time for star-gazing. Learn about the heavenly bodies visible in the night sky—and even the rarely-seen wonders.

It’s a day of planetary and astronomical exploration! Enjoy a full day of activities for learners of all ages, covering topics from stars to planets, comets to meteorites.
