Every second Friday of the month, explore space, the constellations and planets visible from Central Georgia in "Sky Over Macon" in the Mark Smith Planetarium. The show starts with a general tour of the heavenly sights visible each season, and then a live presentation updates the current position of the planets and special events in the sky. The program provides the latest information about current and upcoming celestial events for those who want to learn how to find constellations or planets in the sky or how to increase their knowledge of astronomy. The show begins at 8:00 p.m. (doors open at 7:00 p.m.), and standard museum admission applies.
Join us in the Observatory after "Sky Over Macon" to see the real night sky through our telescopes. Observing, which is free for all, usually begins around 9:00 p.m. and lasts until 11:00 p.m.
