The Detroit Observatory was born in the prime of solar system discovery. The 19th century witnessed the discovery of Neptune, multiple moons around other planets, asteroids by the hundreds, dozens of brilliant comets, and more! Join us December 1st for a series of presentations by DO Staff on our favorite solar system objects!
This program includes tours of the observatory and telescope observing of Jupiter, Saturn, and other seasonal celestial objects, weather permitting. Experience the history of astronomy at the Detroit Observatory!
