SUNY Astronomy Night

Astronomy Nights are held on the first and third Thursday of each month that the university is in session. The free program begins with an indoor planetarium show at the John R. Kirk Planetarium. After the planetarium show Smolen Observatory will be open for telescope viewing only if the sky is clear. Call the observatory at[masked] to hear a message indicating if the public viewing has been cancelled due to cloudy weather. Visitors can participate in either the planetarium show, observatory telescope viewing, or both.

Astronomy Night telescope viewing begins shortly after sunset and therefore the start time changes according to the seasons. 

Although the planetarium show is free, you MUST reserve tickets in advance: http://www.newpaltz.edu/planetarium/shows.html. Since seating is very limited please notify the planetarium via email and change your RSVP here if you can't make it so your seats can be freed up for others.
