COVID-19 Response: Program Updates

Last updated: 8/4/2020

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have had to cancel many of our in-person public programs. Where possible, we are offering online recorded or live lessons. Below is a list of upcoming events and their current status. You can also sign up for our e-newsletter to get notified about upcoming program changes.

If you are a school or community group that booked one of our programs, we will reach out to you to cancel or reschedule programs as needed. Feel free to reach out at Info@DudleyObservatory.org with any questions.

Like many other non-profits and small businesses, the cancellation of our in person programs means a loss in much-needed income. We rely on the support of our community to be able to continue to offer these amazing astronomy programs. If you are able to make a donation to the Dudley Observatory, we would greatly appreciate it!

Stay safe and healthy, and we’ll see you again soon!
