Lowell Observatory today released a sneak-peak animation of its Kemper and Ethel Marley Foundation Astronomy Discovery Center, which will open in fall 2024.
Flagstaff, AZ. – The Kemper and Ethel Marley Foundation Astronomy Discovery Center (ADC) is a three-story, 40,000-square-foot science center opening at Lowell Observatory in 2024. It will be a place of curiosity and discovery for visitors from around the world and features a state-of-the-art theater, exhibit galleries, and a rooftop amphitheater for exploring Flagstaff’s famously dark skies.
More than just a new visitors center, the ADC will be a place of awe, wonder, and education. Lowell Observatory has captured this spirit in the accompanying animated video, which previews the inspiring elements of the facility.
Dr. Jeffrey Hall, Executive Director of Lowell Observatory, says, “Every component of the ADC is built with the purpose of communicating the awesome and unexpected wonders of the Universe, and this video gives you a quick glimpse at each of them. We can’t wait to share them in person in late 2024.”
Opportunities to sponsor elements of the ADC are still available. More information is available at lowell.edu/ADC
