  • Wow! What a thrilling experience we had attending a Friday night sky viewing. The organizers were all extremely helpful and friendly, and the astronomer made understanding the stars, planets and nebulas fun. We were able to see the ring nebula, Saturn and its rings, a view of Jupiter and it's moons, and a binary star system through the telescope. They had the field viewing area outlined with red lights which made the ambience so serene and beautiful while gazing at the stars and constellations. We very much enjoyed some of the Greek mythology that accompanies many constellations that the astronomer outlined for all of us. It was a blast for me as an adult so it must be absolutely magical for kids. If you live in the area or are here on vacation looking for something to top off your day of adventure in the Adirondacks, this is a must go! Thank you again to everyone at the sky center for putting this together!!
  • Go to one of their Summer Friday viewings on a clear night with a new moon. You won't regret it.
