  • Overview

    The Dudley Observatory at miSci is committed to lifelong learning and has created programming specifically designed for adults! Come explore the museum on a quiet afternoon, then join the Dudley Observatory for an exciting astronomy lesson presented by our Outreach Astronomer, Dr. Valerie Rapson. Each day we will focus on a specific astronomy topic. Presentations are designed for all skill levels. No astronomy knowledge is necessary, just come and enjoy learning!

    This month's topic: The Lifecycle of Stars

    Stars can live in our galaxy for millions to billions of years. But where do they come from? And how do their properties change with time? In this lesson we’ll discuss what happens to a star throughout its lifetime and show you where to look to find stars of a variety of ages in the sky.

    Come early or stay after the lesson to enjoy the many exhibits miSci has
    to offer! The museum is open from 10am - 5pm. Senior Science takes place on the first Wednesday of each month at miSci.
