Explore celestial wonders at SkyWatch, presented by PPG, at the Buhl Planetarium and Observatory!
SkyWatch happens rain or shine. The evening begins with a virtual tour of the night sky in Buhl Planetarium. Afterward, visitors are welcome to enjoy additional planetarium programs, and if the skies are clear, head up to our observatory! Gaze at the sky through our 16-inch Meade LX200 Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope, and chat with our team of expert stargazers.
At April's SkyWatch, visitors can expect to see:
- The zodiac constellations of Gemini and Leo.
- Sirius, the brightest star in the night-time sky.
The SkyWatch program is presented at 8 and 10 pm.
Cost: $4 for non-members / $2 for members and as an add-on to general admission.
