Tonight's Lesson: Insight into Mars

Insight is a new robotic mission to Mars launching in May 2018 and arriving in November 2018. It will gather seismic, temperature, and motion information about Mars, helping astronomers understand what the inside of Mars looks like without having to dig any holes! Come learn about this new and exciting spacecraft.

Night Sky Adventures are astronomy fun for the whole family! Educators from the Dudley Observatory, in conjunction with volunteers from the Albany Area Amateur Astronomers group, present astronomy lessons, planetarium shows and night sky viewing (weather depending). Amateur astronomers and families are invited to bring binoculars or telescopes. One or more telescopes will be provided for public use.

Cost: Admission to miSci ($10.50 adult, $7.50 child age 3-12, $9 senior 65+), Free for miSci members

Come early to enjoy the museum galleries as well as the Dudley Observatory program. miSci will be open continuously from 9am through the end of the Night Sky Adventure.
