Treat your family, your club, your friends to a semi-private StarGazing Event reservation for a group of up to 16 people in the PHILLIPS dome. Explore the night skies from the summit of Mt. Lemmon using one of Arizona's LARGEST dedicated public telescope. Your group will observe interesting astronomical objects and phenomena under the guidance of a professional astronomer. This is a 5 hour program. You will be sharing the Learning Center with other public participants.

Clothing: PLEASE bring a winter coat, hats and gloves! The temperature inside the domes will be the same as outside the domes. Although it is warm in Tucson, it will be substantially colder (25-30 degrees) after the sun sets on Mt. Lemmon which is at an elevation of 9157 ft. You may be accustomed to very cold temperatures but you're probably not accustomed to standing still in them for long periods of time. The mindset you need is to put 10 inches between your skin and the outside world- we make Alaskans cold! Do your best to bring warm clothing; your experience will be much more enjoyable if you are dressed appropriately!! LAYERS LAYERS LAYERS
Gift Shop: Astrophotography prints, blankets, apparel, hand warmers, souvenirs.
