Read Frosty Drew Observatory and Science Center's Update on SARS-CoV-2 / Coronavirus Disease 2019 and our Reopening Plan. Updated: August 5, 2020

Weekly Note - May 17, 2013

We at Frosty Drew can't believe that we are having two anniversaries this year. The Frosty Drew Nature Center was begun in 1983, and was followed five years later by the Observatory. We are planning later in the year to celebrate these milestones, and will keep you informed as to the specifics.

The June planetarium show will be one of the most beautiful ever to hit a curved screen. A Starry Tale, the mythology of the sky and the gods who ruled it, was created by the GOTO planetarium company, and has incredible images, suitable for all age groups. Please mark your calendars for Friday, June 14th, at 6:00 and 7:00 P.M. Admission is only $5.00, to benefit both the Planetarium and Frosty Drew Memorial Funds. Afterwards, skies willing, all are invited to Frosty Drew Observatory for the real night sky. The URI Planetarium is on Upper College Road on the Kingston campus, right on the corner of Engineering Row.

Frosty Drew Observatory is privileged to be located at the darkest skies in Rhode Island. Please help us to keep them as dark as possible.
