Welcome to a celestial soirée under the stars! Several times a year the Robert Ferguson Observatory hosts an enchanted evening as we invite our dedicated docents and esteemed members and their guests to an exclusive, open house-style event at our observatory.

Step into a world where the wonders of the universe unfold before your eyes. The night begins with a warm welcome, as our knowledgeable docents educate our guests in an engaging presentation. As the sun sets and the sky darkens, you will have a chance to venture to our state-of-the-art telescopes and learn about the technology that fuels our exploration of the universe. Under the guidance of our expert astronomers, peer through these powerful instruments to witness the beauty of distant galaxies, shimmering nebulae, and elusive planets. Marvel at the intricate details of the moon’s craters, the rings of Saturn, or the ethereal glow of star clusters.

But the evening doesn’t end there. Engage in lively discussions with fellow astronomy enthusiasts, sharing insights, questions, and tales of cosmic discovery. This is the perfect opportunity to mingle and connect in a small group with our docents and like-minded individuals who share your passion for the stars.  

Whether you’re a seasoned stargazer or a curious newcomer, our docent/member night promises an unforgettable journey through the cosmos. Join us as we explore the mysteries of the universe together, forging connections that reach far beyond the bounds of Earth.

Visitors must have an active membership to get tickets to this free event on rfo.simpletix.com
