Plus, there’s music to suit every taste. Different bands are featured every month.

February 11: Stargazing Night

Are you ready to see a comet?  Come to the Virginia Living Museum this event as we do our best to observe Comet (E3) ZTF, known popularly as the Green Comet.  Weather permitting, we’ll have our telescopes trained on the object, as well as the nearby planet Mars.  Just remember – the comet will only look green in pictures.  Why?  Come chat with our astronomers and guests from the Wallops Island Flight Facility sharing some awesome human spaceflight information! Stargazing is FREE and open to all!
