Mt. Lemmon SkyCenter

Located just north of Tucson on the summit of Mt. Lemmon, this unique science learning center builds upon its unique location and the extensive knowledge-base at the University of Arizona to deliver educational adventures including: the SkyNights public observing program, DiscoveryDays where the public can learn more about the scientific and natural wonders of Mt. Lemmon and the Catalina Mountains, and SkyCamps for teens and adults. Tours and programs are available by appointment only.

SkyNights is a popular after-dark program that takes advantage of the unique capabilities of the SkyCenter for experiencing the heavens. The SkyNights experience is offered nightly throughout the year. Learn the constellations, observe interesting atmospheric phenomena, and view the wonders of the cosmos from a high-quality astronomical site using an outstanding new 32-inch Schulman Telescope – Arizona’s largest dedicated public viewing telescope.
