Freebie Friday: Stargazing at the Maryland Science Center


Explore the night sky through the lens of the computer controlled Alvan Clark & Sons 8″ refracting telescope in the Crosby Ramsey Memorial Observatory. The rooftop urban observatory has a computer controlled telescope that lets guests view planets and stars, along with other astronomical events. The observatory is open free to the public on Friday nights when, weather permitting, a look at the Sun is the focus of the day. The Maryland Science Center offers a number of programs to observe the day and night sky whether you visit during regular hours, after hours, or with a group.

The Observatory is open to the public for stargazing every Friday from 5:30 pm to 9:00 pm, weather permitting. Friday admission to the Observatory is free (does not include access to the Museum).

Phone 410-545-2999 after 5:00 PM on Fridays to find out if the Observatory will be open that night.
