The volunteer astronomers will hold discussions with visitors about observations in the sky at Cosmic Nights.

The event will take place outside – weather permitting. Visitors are advised to wear comfortable clothing and shoes. Portable lawn chairs and blankets can be set up for extended viewing. Visitors can also bring binoculars or set up their own telescopes.
