The Avalon Sky Lab

Led by David Cohn, Director of the Educational Projects Network.

Our innovative structure built to match our existing barn has a roof that rolls off to reveal the sky for both stellar and solar observing.

Meet at the Avalon Barn, click here for directions.

Join us on Friday, May 26th at 7:00 pm, we will be doing a special presentation for young children of “One World One Sky” in the Barn.

Click here for more information about this show.

In addition, at 8:00 pm we will be giving a live planetarium presentation of Spring and Summer Constellations for general audiences.

Sky Lab viewing will begin around 8:30 (weather permitting) and will include Jupiter and various Deep Sky Objects.

The Avalon Sky Lab houses several permanently mounted telescopes and is used in conjunction with educational programs here at Avalon. These include observing and imaging a variety of celestial objects and events including sunspots and solar flares.

Naturally, the Avalon Sky Lab is a welcome addition to our current monthly astronomy programs. These have included the use of a portable planetarium in all weather conditions, and have featured a variety of portable telescopes on clear nights. The permanent Avalon Sky Lab enclosure allows us to make telescopes available on a moment’s notice and helps us provide more frequent viewing opportunities.
