Meet at the Avalon Barn, click here for directions.

Join us this Friday, May 25th, at 8:00 pm, we will be showing  “Two Small Pieces of Glass” in the Barn.

Click here for more information about this program.

Sky Lab and Sky Dome viewing will begin around 9:00 (weather permitting) and will include Venus, Jupiter, Spring Constellations, various Deep Sky Objects, and a Waxing Gibbous Moon.

The Avalon Observatories house several permanently mounted telescopes and are 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.

Our monthly programs 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 Observatory enclosures allow us to make telescopes available on a moment’s notice and help us provide more frequent viewing opportunities. Stay tuned for even more frequent events!
