On Saturday, July 5, Starlab, a portable planetarium, will receive visitors for an exploration of the night sky at Boscobel House & Gardens. Stargazers will enter the inflatable dome (inside the Carriage House at Boscobel), relax on the floor and gaze up at a night sky to look for star patterns: Scorpius the Scorpion, Big Dipper, Little Dipper, Cassiopeia, Polaris the North Star and more.

Stars, constellations and enthusiastic storytelling by Boscobel’s Museum Educator Lisa DiMarzo combine for an exciting, entertaining and enlightening experience for adults and children.

Starlab holds 22 participants, so reserve your spot early.
