Chabot Space & Science Center’s Virtual Telescope Viewings

Join Chabot Space & Science Center’s resident astronomers on Facebook Live every Saturday evening live from Chabot’s Observation deck! Each week, our astronomers will guide us through spectacular night sky viewing through Nellie, Chabot‘s most powerful telescope.

Weather permitting, we will be able to view objects live through the telescopes and our astronomers will be available for an open forum for all of your most pressing astronomy questions.

About Nellie
Nellie is a 36-inch reflector telescope, housed in a rolling roof observatory that allows access to 180 degrees of sky. This modern, research-quality telescope offers breathtaking views of the cosmos.

While this event is free, please consider making a donation so we can continue to create engaging STEM programming while we’re closed. Any amount counts: https://14884.blackbaudhosting.com/14884/Support-Science-Education-2

This month, we celebrating our 20th anniversary on Skyline with a virtual silent auction to benefit STEM education. Throughout the month of August, make a difference by bidding on once-in-a-lifetime experiences like a private telescope viewing and prints from Chabot’s recent Luminous Moon exhibition: https://paybee.io/@chabotspace
