Stargaze at PARI

Public invited to SkyTrek stargazing events

Join PARI astronomers the first and third weekends of every month as they gaze skyward and point out the prominent features of the night sky. Use PARI telescopes or bring your own. The night skies are constantly changing, so come often and bring the entire family.  Before our Saturday sessions, enjoy dinner a delicious buffet dinner at our new restaurant, Smiley’s!
