$5 admission begins at 6pm, and does not apply from 10am-5pm. The center is closed to the general public between 5-6pm (with the exceptions of current CSSC members) and reopens at 6pm for $5 First Friday.


Our natural curiosity to learn about the universe and our place within it has driven us to explore further into the outer reaches of space than before. Learn why we go, how we get there, and what we do there, in this fun space-themed night. Hands-on activities, presentations and a sneak peek at our newest exhibition, Going the Distance: Our Reach Into Space, will showcase the innovative, game changing ways scientist have engineered machines to bring us closer to understanding the cosmos. Also, join us in our Megadome theater for an exciting talk by Dan Werthimer, Chief Scientist at Berkeley SETI about the future of space and the search for extra-terrestrial intelligence.
