Members and the public are welcome to enjoy a Saturday night under the South Florida Stars (Note: Members must display their background check badges when attending.) The Fox Astronomical Observatory is located inside of Broward County’s Markham Park. The Observatory is open to the public Saturdays from Sunset until midnight.
All are welcome. You can bring your own telescope and we can answer any questions you have. On rainy/cloudy nights we can still provide astronomy based presentations and videos, so visit us rain or shine!
If you arrive at the park before Sunset the toll taker at the front entrance will be able to direct you to the Fox Observatory inside the park. If you arrive after Sunset there will be nobody at the front entrance – when you get to the 4-way stop, turn left, then take the first right, come to the end of the circle. The observatory will be the flat roof building with the red lights. If you get lost please call the observatory for directions
