On weather-cooperative Fridays, between 8:30 pm and 10:00 pm, visit the Gilliland Observatory on the roof of the Museum of Science parking garage for a free evening of astronomy-themed fun. On clear nights, you can view stars, planets, the Moon, and other astronomical phenomena. On cloudy nights, tour the inside of the museum's Observatory, and participate in astronomy-related activities run by the knowledgeable staff. To find out if Astronomy After Hours is running on a given Friday, call our hotline, 617-589-0267. The hotline is updated each Friday by 5:30 pm with the evening’s plans. More information here.
