Planetary Viewing Event
August 15, 2018
On Wednesday, August 15, Venus, Moon, Jupiter, Saturn and Mars will all be visible in our night’s sky! To celebrate this celestial occasion, the Buffalo Museum of Science is hosting planetary activities throughout the day, offering special planetarium shows (30-minute presentations from 4:30 to 8:45 p.m.) and, weather permitting, rooftop viewing.
In addition to a limited number of hosted, 20-minute sessions in the Kellogg Observatory (reservations open at 10 a.m.), guests can purchase a rooftop-only viewing ticket, where they can view the five planets through the Museum’s rooftop telescopes.
Planetarium tickets are available on a first come, first served walk-up basis on Wednesday. Observatory and rooftop tickets will be available, weather permitting, at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, August 15.
