Enjoy a lunar observing experience at OM with our astronomers and get a closer look at our largest natural satellite. Observe the Moon’s landscape through our 14” Meade telescope exploring craters, mountains and plains. Using our latest technology we will share the same visions first witnessed by Neil Armstrong and learn more about the lunar landscape and the features you’ll be able to see!
