George Observatory, a satellite facility of the Houston Museum of Natural Science located in the Brazos Bend State Park, allows you to become an astronomer for the evening. The observatory has one of the nation’s largest research telescopes from which visitors can view a variety of astronomical phenomenon, such as meteor showers, Saturn’s rings, cloud belts on Jupiter, the Milky Way, and much more! Astronomers will be onsite to help guide visitors and answer questions. This event requires extensive walking, standing, and climbing some stairs. Participants should wear comfortable shoes.
