  • 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: Our Next Door Neighbor: The Andromeda Galaxy
    Astronomers have used a variety of telescopes to explore the Andromeda galaxy. They’ve mapped the spiral arms, spotted exploding stars, and even measured its motion through the Universe. Join us for a 2.5 million light year journey to our next door neighbor, Andromeda!

    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.
