My wife and I had a wonderful time visiting the Werner Schmidt Observatory and Cape Cod Astronomical Society during one of their recent Thursday evening star-gazing events.
You can visit each Thursday. The first Thursday of the month they have a speaker in the Dennis-Yarmouth High School Library at 7:30pm followed by the star-gazing in the observatory if the weather cooperates. We haven't attended a lecture, but it looks like it could be interesting.
On all other Thursdays just show up at 8:30pm and they'll show you the universe, literally, through their 16" and 18" telescopes. We saw a lot and learned a lot. Everyone was very friendly and although they knew a lot more about astronomy than us, made us feel welcome and were very helpful.
And, there was no charge. It was great! We can't wait to do it again.
