Grab your sweetie and snuggle up as you celebrate the shortest day of the year! With the Sun going down early, Chabot is the best place to experience the Winter Solstice sky and to observe the Cosmos through one of our historic telescopes. Bring your sleeping bags and blankets and listen to an expert stargazer explain the mythology and history behind the constellations and look for planets and other clues to help orient you to the night's sky. During the evening wine, beer and hot cocoa will be served. Dinner can be purchased in the Space Café. The package includes the Star Stories lecture, 2 drink tickets per person and admission for two to the museum. Arrive early and enjoy the Winter Solstice Celebration throughout the Center (beginning at 4pm). Festivities include holiday treats, presentations and live scientist carolers.
Please note: Weather permitting for outside viewing. If night sky conditions become too poor for viewing, the program will take place inside one of our historic telescope domes. Don't forget to bring your blankets and dress warm!
