Night-time programme. Register by phone +370 615 20688. Two telescopes are used (40 and 80 cm in diameter). This excursion is highly dependent on weather conditions (clear sky is needed) thus registered visitors are given the telephone number of the guide on duty. Call in the afternoon of the excursion day and find out if the weather conditions are suitable. If a group forms but the weather conditions are unfavourable, Consolation (substitute) excursions are organized (time may be changed). The 40 cm one – up to 22 people at a time.

Groups are formed by the museum thus individual visitors are welcome to register as well. Visitors who have been drinking may be refused admission.

Observations start 1–1.5 h after sunset. Five different celestial objects are shown (the Moon, planets, stars, pairs of stars, clusters, nebulae, and galaxies). The guide aims a telescope at an object of interest and then the visitors can take a look. These observations are unique, allowing one to appreciate the immeasurable distances of the universe as well as the sizes of various objects.

Please note that the sky is different throughout the seasons. For example, sometimes the Moon doesn’t rise at all. Darker nights are better for such observations. The Night-time programme takes place in the open and at considerable altitude, thus we recommend warm clothes. Duration: 1.5 hrs.
