‘Scopes In The City

Adler astronomers and educators are bringing the museum—and the Universe—a little closer to you with 'Scopes In The City!

Adler astronomers and educators are bringing the museum—and the Universe—a little closer to you! With ‘Scopes in the City, Adler astronomers and staff lead free telescope observing programs in Chicago neighborhoods. Depending on the dates, times and locations of the ‘Scopes in the City events, attendees may be able to observe the Sun, Moon, Jupiter, Saturn, and more!

Because all ‘Scopes in the City events are weather permitting, please follow us on Twitter @AdlerPlanet or search #ScopesintheCity for updates. You never know where our telescopes will pop up next!

The Adler Planetarium is grateful to our founding donor the Petrovich Family Foundation, as well as U.S. Bank for supporting ‘Scopes in the City.
