Observatory Viewing Night

Do you generally prefer knowledge of the universe to be delivered to you in a sultry yet confident drawl spoken by a fine mustached gentleman? Same here. (Because Neil Degrasse Tyson is everything!) Alas, it is the summertime rerun cycle, so if you still want your fix of the Cosmos, you'll need to fit it in locally like here at the Broward College Buehler Planetarium and Observatory. As the only full-time public planetarium in Broward County, the space always has something to offer, from Celestial Navigation night to A Solar System Odyssey. If you've never been, start with tonight's A Starry Night -- a weekly live presentation in the theater using the observatory's digital full-dome planetarium system. After the presentation, stay put for Sky Tour, an extensive overview of the skies during which guests can get their hands on the telescopes and peek into the sky to see all of its wonderment. An astronomer is always on deck to help set up the telescopes and answer questions. A Starry Night starts at 7 p.m. with observatory hours from 8 to 10 p.m. at 3501 SW Davie Road, Davie. Cost is $4.
