Apr 1 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm
Featured Astronomer: Dr. Larry Wasserman
There aren’t many places in the world where the public can meet a professional astronomer and ask him or her questions. In this spirit, we’re kicking off our new “Meet an Astronomer” initiative. Come up to Mars Hill and meet a Lowell astronomer Saturday evenings from 7 – 10 pm*. Plus, take a peek at real-time images of planets, stars, galaxies and other celestial objects to be displayed on a large television screen outdoors with our new MallinCam. This is your opportunity to see interesting objects in the night sky, learn about an astronomer’s research, and ask questions you might have about any topic in astronomy.
Admission fees apply, no reservation required.
