    Tonight's Lesson: Astronomical Bloopers

    Everybody makes mistakes, including the smartest astronomers and engineers at NASA. Sometimes these mistakes are catastrophic, but other times they lead to big unexpected discoveries. Join us as we learn about some of the failed missions across all space agencies, and what we learned from them.

    Night Sky Adventures are astronomy fun for the whole family! Educators from the Dudley Observatory, in conjunction with volunteers from the Albany Area Amateur Astronomers group, present astronomy lessons, planetarium shows and night sky viewing (weather depending). Amateur astronomers and families are invited to bring binoculars or telescopes. One or more telescopes will be provided for public use.

    Come early to enjoy the museum galleries as well as the Dudley Observatory program. miSci will be open continuously from 9am through the end of the Night Sky Adventure.
