Visit the observatory with your class!

Field trips to see and use the Observatory are highly encouraged. 

It gives kids a great opportunity to see the skies like never before. 
Elementary, Middle School and High School students are all welcome to visit.
We have a solar telescope to look directly at the sun and a research grade 16″ Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope (similar to the telescopes at Colgate University and Hamilton College) to see the night skies.

Nighttime and daytime trips can be arranged. 
Email: director@watervillepl.org to set up a visit.
