Join us for an evening outdoor Astronomy Viewing Opportunity in The Bishop’s North Plaza. You’ll be able to use telescopes to view Mars as well as Jupiter and Saturn, which are nearing their Great Conjunction in December. Experience the awe-inspiring wonder of backyard astronomy for yourself!

To stay within social distancing guidelines, reservations are limited and we will have two start times: 7pm and 8pm.

Cost: $5 for members of The Bishop’s Discovery Society; $8 for all others.

Please note: Rain date is Saturday, November 7. Masks are required for all guests over age 2. We’re also following social distancing guidelines.
