The general public and Mount Cuba Astronomical Observatory members are invited to visit the Observatory on select Monday evenings at 8 p.m. for Public Night programs. These programs include discussions and illustrated talks on astronomy, planetarium programs and offer the opportunity to view the planets, moon and other objects through the telescope, weather permitting. Due to limited parking and seating at the observatory, admission is by reservation only. The Delaware Astronomical Society maintains a 12.5″ Newtonian telescope a short distance from the main Observatory building at Mount Cuba. Monthly meetings are usually held at the Observatory except during the months of July and August. There is also a Mount Cuba Astronomy Group, whose mission is to increase knowledge and expand awareness of the science of astronomy and related technologies. “Lower light pollution than many places in Delaware.”
