The Scalan Observatory telescope is only available following the last planetarium program of the evening if weather and staffing permits.  The planetarium programs will run as scheduled with doors opening at 6:00pm for the first program.  The observatory telescope decision may be made as the evening progresses.  There is no fee for this service.  The first Friday of each month, weather permitting, the San Antonio Astronomical Association (SAAA) sets up  telescopes on the front terrace areas of our center for free viewing of the heavens.  This group's participation may  replace the Scalan observatory viewing on these nights.
