There will also be telescopes available for Moongazing at the Museum's Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center in Chantilly, VA at the same time as this event.

This stargazing event will be held if weather conditions permit. For weather and closure updates, check @SIObservatory, call 202.633.2517 the day of the event, or ask at the Welcome Center when you arrive at the Museum.
