Tickets are available one month before each event. Please note that these events sell out quickly, so plan ahead to avoid disappointment. Visit our Open House Days and Telescope Nights pages for tickets and more information.
There are no Open House or Telescope Night dates in the months of December, January or February, because Dyer Observatory is closed.
