Music of Spheres Dates
Programs include concert, a talk by a University of California astronomer about current research, and (weather permitting) viewing through the historic Great Lick Refractor and the Nickel 40-inch telescope. Knowledgeable local amateur astronomers outside the buildings provide additional telescopes and informal astronomy discussions. Concert image courtesy Jeremy Zawodny.
Please note: We regret that due to the historic construction of the telescope domes and safety concerns, neither the Lick 36-inch refracting nor the Nickel 40-inch reflecting telescopes are wheelchair accessible at this time. Those who have difficulty navigating stairs may also find the telescopes inaccessible. Funds are being raised through the Friends of Lick Observatory to repair the elevating floor of the Lick 36-inch telescope to re-enable handicap access.
Please note: Due to safety regulations, children must be at least 8 years of age for admission. No exceptions. Due to late hours the program may be difficult for children under 12.
Friends of Lick Observatory: Support Lick Observatory with your donation; receive perks and participate in special programs. One of the many advantages of being a Friend of Lick Observatory is receiving early notification of the ticket sales, as they sell out quickly. [More information]
