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.

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. Join museum staff and guest astronomers as we explore outer space during the darkest month of the year.
