Can you believe that despite the advent of space telescopes and launching many space probes, we have only observed a minor fraction of the known Universe?
That doesn’t even take into account the Universe that we have no knowledge of at this time. Even so, you can explore the night sky through the lens of a telescope at the Museum of Arts and Sciences
After Sky Over Macon, if the sky is clear, you can view the night sky through several powerful telescopes of different types in the Museum’s Observatory, including 8-, 10- and 14-inch Celestron Schmidt-Cassegrains, and a 17-inch Dobsonian.
The Observatory is free for everyone—however, donations are encouraged and greatly appreciated!
