This event is drop-in. No registration necessary. Please note that visibility depends on the weather, and the library building and restrooms will close at 9 PM. A few additional rules for the Skywatch:

  • Watch your step: Be especially careful of wires on the ground.
  • No Flash Photography: The bright flash of a camera can wreck everyone's night vision.
  • Stay Warm: bring a jacket and long pants.
