You might also want to attend Lick's Friday Night Visitors Program.
Programs include concert, a talk by a University of California astronomer about current research, and (weather permitting) viewing through the historic Great Lick Refractor and the Nickel 40-inch telescope. Knowledgeable local amateur astronomers outside the buildings provide additional telescopes and informal astronomy discussions. Concert image courtesy Jeremy Zawodny.
Due to safety concerns, children under the age of 10 will not be admitted to Music of the Spheres or Friday Night Visitors Program events.
