Cosmic Nights at the Victor Valley Museum are in partnership with the High Desert Astronomical Society (HiDAS). Based at the Luz Observatory in Apple Valley, HiDAS was formed to provide trained, volunteer astronomers to operate and maintain the Center’s astronomical equipment. The evenings feature telescope viewing, an opportunity to discuss astronomy with the telescope operators, and visitors are also encouraged to bring binoculars or set up their own telescopes.

The events take place outdoors, weather permitting, and guests are advised to wear comfortable clothing and shoes. Guests are welcome to set up portable lawn chairs and blankets for extended viewing. Museum galleries will be open during the event and regular admission applies. Tickets are available in advance online by visiting Eventbrite, or may be purchased at the door. The museum is accessible to persons with disabilities.

The San Bernardino County Museum’s exhibits of regional, cultural and natural history and the Museum’s other exciting events and programs reflect the effort by the Board of Supervisors to achieve the Countywide Vision by celebrating arts, culture, and education in the county, creating quality of life for residents and visitors.
