Free Stargazing Friday Nights at Dearborn Observatory

The Dearborn Observatory is open for public observing with the historic 18.5" refracting telescope every Friday night from 8:00-10:00 pm.

Your group will have a tour of the Observatory, and be able to look through the telescope for the full hour.

We usually try to allow everyone at least one opportunity to look through the telescope, but space is limited in the dome; therefore, there is no guarantee that everyone will be able to look through the telescope if we are very crowded.

The Friday night observation tours at the Dearborn Observatory are open to the public, and there are two hours open for visiting:
8:00 to 9:00pm: * Reservation hour only.
9:00 to 10:00pm: Walk-ins are welcome.

There is no fee for the Friday night observation tours; however, if you make a reservation for a group of 10 or more, we do require a refundable deposit which will be returned to you on the night of your visit.

* If you would like to make a reservation and want to learn more about the Observatory, or need information about a private group viewing, please call the Dearborn Observatory at 847-491-7650.
