    Join us at the telescope! (For 2 people)

    Grab a friend and join us at the Lick Observatory to view objects through the Great Refractor, and possibly help us take a picture through it too. Due to weather, we won't know the exact date until it's nearly upon us, but plan for May 2nd, or close to it. You'll also receive two 8x12 inch prints when they are finished being processed, and all the digital images produced from the project. We'll begin at sundown and the viewing will last approximately 2.5 hours. You must provide your own transportation to the observatory.
