On October 23rd we are offering a special program for the partial solar eclipse. Join us in the day atop the beautiful Mount Lemmon (when it is warm) and see the eclipse, tour the site, and even look through our telescopes! You can also stay for the evening stargazing program as well for a full day/night of fun. Buy tickets for this now before they are gone.

Mt. Lemmon SkyCenter’s SkyNights: Astrophotography program is a unique and awe-inspiring opportunity to peer beyond the blue horizons of our southwestern skies and explore the astronomical wonders of the Universe. We’ll not only be looking through the telescope but also capture the views using a CCD camera.
Renown astrophotographer, Adam Block, will take you through the process of how he creates these amazing images that have earned him worldwide recognition. During this six hour program you will navigate the night sky with binoculars and skycharts then gaze at spectacular planets, galaxies, and nebulae with our 32-inch Schulman Telescope. This telescope is the largest dedicated public observing telescope in Arizona. You will partake in the process of creating images that you have just viewed that will subsequently be made available to you.
