The Universe Tonight

On the first Saturday of each month, the Visitor Information Station (VIS) hosts The Universe Tonight, a special presentation on the current research and discoveries occurring on Maunakea. The presentation begins at 6:00 PM and is followed by the regular evening stargazing program at the VIS.

The Universe Tonight typically features an astronomer from one of the observatories on Maunakea giving a presentation on recent observations and discoveries from their telescope. Observatories are on a rotating schedule.
