Discover the wonders of our Universe with Franklin Astronomy Club Founder, Zach Lichtmann. View amazing celestial targets at night with a high-powered telescope while hunting for orbiting satellites soaring overhead. An informed, casual discussion will be themed based on the night's observable targets. Many different celestial targets are visible on clear nights such as the moon, planets, star clusters, nebulae, galaxies, satelites and even the international space station.

Some targets are only visible at certain times/dates, but there are always several special targets to observe.

A themed discussion occurs alongside visible examples in the telescope. Ample time to explore questions is built into the experience.

$35 per person. Reservations are required. Please call 844.330.1710.  Experience will be canceled on cloudy nights. 

Registered guests meet on the driving range at Grand Cascades Clubhouse. Property Map
