Experience the mystery and majesty of outer space by attending Friday Night Stargazing in Baltimore at the Observatory. Located on the rooftop of the Maryland Science Center, situated in Baltimore's Inner Harbor, the Observatory features a historic, and now computer-operated, refracting telescope that offers visitors unbelievable views of planets, the Moon and the stars. Locate your favorite constellations and view the Moon like never before. The perfect activity for a romantic night out or an evening of family fun, Friday Night Stargazing is an amazing, out-of-this-world experience.
Held from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. during the winter months, Friday Night Stargazing is a free experience for attendees. However, the event does not include admission into the Museum, which is well-worth the admission price. Catering to a wide range of ages and interests, the Maryland Science Center is arguably the most popular destination for families. Step into the world of prehistoric predators at the Dinosaurs Mysteries exhibit or prepare for stargazing by experiencing the Center's Life Beyond Earth exhibit, which asks the question "Are we alone?"
For a full day of family fun, experience the interactive exhibits of the Maryland Science Center, then cap-off the day with free stargazing on Friday nights. Or, plan a surprise, after-dinner activity for your significant other, as the Observatory is a short walk for Inner Harbor's many celebrated restaurants. Friday Night Stargazing is weather-permitting, so it may be wise to call the Observatory at 410-545-2999 to make sure the event is being held.
