Enjoy a unique, private experience with Hari, an astrobiologist, and Sam, an astrophysicist, as they exclusively share their passion for the cosmos with your group. Benefit from their combined expertise as they lead you through an extraordinary exploration of the Universe. In this experience you will get maximum use of the telescopes and we will bring out both of the big 16 inch reflecting telescopes. If the weather is cloudy then we'll take you on a virtual sky exploration experience where Hari and Sam can answer any of your questions about the universe. You'll then have exclusive use of the VR headsets and will be able to explore any of our VR experiences. At the same time we'll serve up a stellar hot chocolate to keep you warm.
