Buhl Planetarium

SkyWatch

Visitors are invited to come to SkyWatch at the Henry Buhl, Jr. Planetarium & Observatory and get up-close and personal with amazing celestial objects. SkyWatch happens rain or shine. The evening begins with a virtual tour of the night sky in Buhl Planetarium. Afterward, visitors are welcome to enjoy additional planetarium programs, and if the skies are clear, head up to our observatory! Spot Saturn's rings or details on the lunar surface through our 16-inch Meade LX200 Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope, and chat with our team of expert stargazers.

On evenings that SkyWatch is presented, we offer the program twice. Come early, or come late, as your schedule permits.

Are you an astronomy expert? Bring your own (fully assembled) telescope to share with others, and visit SkyWatch for free!

Cost: $4 for non-members / $2 for members and as an add-on to general admission or an Omnimax show

Meet in the first floor of Carnegie Science Center at either 7pm or 9pm. A guide will lead you to our second-floor Buhl Planetarium, to start the evening with a virtual tour of the night sky.
