Star viewing brings astronomy to the Arboretum

1 min read

Enjoying the diversity of trees at the Arnold Arboretum may compel visitors to look upward into the canopy for a better view. This Saturday evening, the Arboretum invites visitors to look up even farther, as it partners with the Harvard College Observatory and Boston Parks and Recreation to present a public star viewing on Weld Hill.

Kicking off on Saturday, Sept. 22, at 7 p.m., visitors may drop in at the Weld Hill landscape to participate in celestial observations until 9:30 p.m. Observatory staff and volunteers from the Amateur Telescope Makers of Boston will help guide your way around the night sky, with and without the aid of telescopes.

This event is free, but registration is required.
