Lick astronomers present multimedia lectures on their research or topics of current interest. A ‘History of Lick Observatory’ talk is also presented. Amateur astronomer volunteers provide additional outside viewing and informal talks.
The first talk begins at sunset. Observing begins when it gets dark and continues until everyone has had the opportunity to view through both telescopes. Because of the late hours and the need for reasonable public behavior, attendance is not advisable for most children under 8 years old.
Tickets will be available by phone on a first come first served basis. Tickets sales will be staggered: each program date will have its own ticket sale date. Price is $5.00, which includes service fee.
