Free Public Stargazing at our Observatory


Get Directions

#var:page_name# cover

We might actually have a clear weekend for some #freepublicstargazing, Saturday Arpil 7th from 8pm to 10pm at our observatories. It does look like it's going to be a little chilly, but this time of year you can still see the beautiful Orion Neblua, the Pleiades star cluster, and in our observatory equipped with a camera, we might even be able to see some of those galaxies hidden in Leo. So put on that winter coat and hat one more weekend, and check out the things that are in the sky above you.

These events are family friendly and open free to the public.

Our observatories are located on Plainfield-Naperville Rd, north of Boughton and south of 95th on the property of the Springbrook Water Reclamation Center. Follow the flashing blue lights. A Google map is at: http://bit.ly/NAA-AEC.

If you can't make it this time, a 2-month calendar of our events is at http://naperastro.org/calendar
As always, check our website (http://naperastro.org/) the afternoon of the event for a go/cancel notice.
