The SFAA has organized a private tour of the world renowned Lick Observatory. The tour will begin in the early evening (exact time to follow) and will last 4-6 hours.
We get to look forward to seeing the 120-inch reflecting telescope (the main research instrument used by the astronomers at Lick) and learning about the ongoing research in astronomy and astrophysics and, hopefully, weather permitting, viewing astronomical objects through the 36-inch refracting telescope. Group members may purchase photographs, posters, booklets, T-shirts, etc. at the gift shop.
Although the SFAA does not provide transportation to or from the Observatory, we do encourage carpooling. More details to follow — Sign up below for this incredible opportunity!
