Right: This star map is oriented for 8:51PM on Saturday, July 30, 2017. If it is clear, go out and see if you can identify the constellations above.
Diagon Alley is part of Aurora’s Harry Potter Festival and may be closed to outsiders. If you cannot find what you seek there, visit our magical Fantastical Astronomy Fair!
Experience the ‘magic’ of full-body physics outside! The Fox Motion Park features five stations where visitors will learn the keys to common motion ‘spells.’
Study the night during the day in our Digital StarLab! Your ticket will have a specific StarLab presentation time. Plan to arrive 5 minutes before your presentation.
