Virtual Telescope Viewings

Every Saturday night
9:30 p.m.
Watch on Facebook and YouTube

Join Chabot’s resident astronomers on Facebook Live every Saturday evening live from the Observation deck! Each week, our astronomers will guide us through spectacular night sky viewing through Nellie, Chabot‘s most powerful telescope. Weather permitting we will be able to view objects live through the telescopes and astronomers will be available for an open forum for all of your most pressing astronomy questions.
