Welcome to the Frosty Drew Observatory Stargazing Nights! Every Friday night (weather permitting) we open our Observatory, Science Center, Sky Theatre, and telescopes to the sky and offer free stargazing and astronomy to anybody interested in observing with us.
Tonight's forecasts are looking rather questionable. After a rainy and windy day, the sky will clear out at some point tonight. The timing of that clearing is what is quite variable at this time. There is a good chance that clearings will kick in around the midpoint of our event, but everything will be quite wet. So we will keep the observatory telescopes closed tonight, and kick off our First Light Celebration on Friday, November 19, 2021.
In the meantime, catch up on some amazing astronomical happenings this week in:
A Celebration of Space - November 12, 2021
Check out our page on Visiting Frosty Drew Observatory to learn more about what to expect at the Observatory and to better help you prepare for your visit.
Please note that we do not allow any white lights on our campus from dusk - dawn. This is to ensure an equally awesome view of the night sky for all and to allow for the use of light sensitive astronomical equipment. Learn more about why we have this requirement in The Red Light District.
If you are looking for that awesome astronomy thing to do or just want a night out to experience the cosmos under the darkest sky in Rhode Island, then this is your chance.
Please note that due to the evolving COVID-19 pandemic, the detail of this event may change. Please check in regularly, both here and on our SARS-CoV-2 page, to stay up to date.
