Join us at the Keystone Science School Campus Observatory for a night of Celestial Wonder. Our incredible astronomist, AstroMark, will show guests the night sky using the Observatory telescope on campus. Claudine Wines will be offering tastings of four different wines throughout the evening. Light hors d’oeuvres will be offered.

All attendees should note that closed-toed shoes are necessary and heels will not do well on the observatory steps. Please consider wearing flat shoes that evening.
