Kitt Peak National Observatory Night-Time Tour

June 11, 2018 (Monday)

Travel with us to Kitt Peak National Observatory, located at 7,000’ in the Quinlan Mountains, for this very special evening.  With 23 optical and two radio telescopes, it is the largest, most diverse gathering of astronomical instruments in the northern hemisphere. We begin our tour with a stop at their Visitor Center where we will examine the exhibits that describe this national observatory and other interesting topics.  We enjoy a light meal and then have a docent-led introduction to astronomy and the night sky.  Next, we learn how to identify stars and the constellations.  Once we are outdoors we will explore the night skies and view them with high-powered binoculars.  Then we enter one of the domes to view through a telescope and observe the night skies in all its grandeur.  Come along and discover your universe.  If you’ve never participated in one of the night-time Kitt Peak programs before you are in for a very pleasant surprise. Warm clothes are a must! Good walking shoes (closed toe), pants (not shorts) and a jacket are highly recommended. (In case of inclement weather we reserve the right to insert an alternate astronomy program presented by Kitt Peak National Observatory.)
