Astronomy Night: Stargazing in the Cemetery


We hope to reschedule for a later date this spring or summer. We'll keep you posted!!!

Grab a blanket and take a tour of the cosmos with local astronomers. As part of the Philadelphia Science Festival (, over 20 venues in and around the city will play host to astronomy night star parties with amateur astronomers coming out en mass with their telescopes to show locals the wonders of the night sky. If you have your own telescope or binoculars, bring them along! Don’t forget to bring your own blankets, beach chairs, beverages and/or snacks! Laurel Hill will also offer a raffle, and an array of merchandise for sale. Relaxing and stargazing from Philly’s most ethereal site = a perfect way to end the week!

Admission to the event is FREE and open to the public. For additional information, phone (215) 228-8200.

    I have a telescope that I have no idea how to use. My SO and I are going to bring it and see if we can figure it out. I am very excited by this event!

      Jessica, I'm sure that one of our astronomers would be happy to help you set it up!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
