MOSI SkyWatch Events

See the universe up-close and personal through MOSI’s telescopes.

  • See craters on the Moon.
  • Watch as another planet’s moons slowly perform a gravitational dance.
  • See stellar nurseries where stars are being formed.
  • See star clusters so far away that light – traveling at 186,000 miles per second – takes tens of thousands of years to make it to your eye.
SkyWatch is free and open to the public. Upcoming Skywatch events: Sat. April 5, and Sat. May 8.

Check the Events Calendar for the next SkyWatch

Viewings begin at Sundown. 

Please note: Clear skies are required to use the telescopes, SkyWatch will be cancelled if it is raining or cloudy.
