Expand your horizons and see the Universe from a new perspective! At SkyWatch events the public is invited to come and view the Moon, planets, and some of the brighter deep-sky objects through the variety of telescopes owned by CPO members. These free events are sponsored by the Central PA Observers Club and the Centre Region Parks and Recreation Authority. Please bring a flashlight.  FREE! 


Even though the public Star Watches have concluded for the 2016, there is a great open house coming up in December. If you have a telescope and wanted some additional help, join the Central PA Observers Club at their Open House!

Concluded for 2016
