Go Stargazing At Home With Virtual Activities From Lowell Observatory In Arizona

We all look up at the same night sky to admire the cosmos – an activity that Lowell Observatory in Flagstaff holds near and dear to its heart. During this time of social distancing, the staff has put together a virtual astronomy program that features coffee chats and interviews with experts, special coverage of celestial events, and even educational activities for kids.
