ORLANDO, Fla. — The Orlando Science Center is opening the doors to its observatory once again after being closed for nearly two years.
The observatory is the silver dome on top of the Orlando Science Center and houses one of the largest refractor telescopes in the state.
The telescope allows people to get intimate views of the planets and other astronomical bodies in our solar system.
Due to the pandemic, the observatory has been closed to the public for almost two years.
Starting Friday, Nov. 12, the Orlando Science Center will begin offering a new private experience for small groups to spend the evening among the stars.
Guest taking part in this experience will get the opportunity to fly to the moon and play among the stars with telescope viewing and a special planetarium show, which will take you on an intergalactic tour of planets and constellations.
Tours will be conducted by the Science Center’s resident space enthusiasts and are available by reservation only.
Observatory tours will be offered at 8:30 p.m. and 9:45 p.m. on Fridays and Saturday nights through March 5.
