Stargazing at the Roll-Off Roof Observatory

Outside, under the dark skies of the Adirondacks, lessons come alive as visitors are guided to see—with their own eyes unaided, with binoculars and telescopes—across the vast distances of space to objects that challenge our understanding and even our imagination. The combination of low humidity, high altitude, and lack of light pollution provide ideal conditions for night sky viewing. Fridays in Spring-Summer-Fall and sometimes Winter!
