The public is invited to join the Dexter Southfield community for an evening of viewing at the Clay Center Observatory. The Observatory is open on Tuesday evenings in the spring and fall, weather permitting.
Depending on conditions and season, we will point the telescope toward a variety of planets, the Moon, and stars. Visitors also can enjoy a panoramic view of greater Boston from the observation decks, and walk among the constellations on the stars court. Children are welcome, but must remain with parents at all times.
Please register in advance for this event. This will help us to make the experience as enjoyable as possible for everyone. If weather is rainy or overcast, we will not open. In case of questionable weather, call 617-751-3409 one hour before the event for a recorded message.
