Come to SkyWatch, presented by PPG, at the Buhl Planetarium and Observatory and get up-close and personal with amazing celestial objects!

January's SkyWatch will feature a brilliant view of the waxing gibbous moon next to Aldebaran, the ‘Eye of the Bull’ in Taurus. Other celestial wonders include the Pleaides open star cluster, the Great Orion Nebula, and a ghostly view of icy Uranus.

SkyWatch happens rain or shine. The evening begins with a virtual tour of the night sky in Buhl Planetarium. Afterward, visitors are welcome to enjoy additional planetarium programs, and if the skies are clear, head up to our observatory! Spot Saturn's rings or details on the lunar surface through our 16-inch Meade LX200 Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope, and chat with our team of expert stargazers.

On evenings that SkyWatch is presented, we offer the program twice — at 7 pm and 9 pm. Come early, or come late, as your schedule permits.

Are you an astronomy expert? Bring your own (fully assembled) telescope to share with others, and visit SkyWatch for free!

Cost: $4 for non-members / $2 for members and as an add-on to general admission.

Meet in the first floor of Carnegie Science Center at either 7 pm or 9 pm. A guide will lead you to our second-floor Buhl Planetarium, to start the evening with a virtual tour of the night sky.
