Looking for a starry-eyed event to add to your weekend? Head over to the San Bernardino County Museum on Saturday, June 15, from 7 to 10 p.m. for Cosmic Nights. In partnership with the San Bernardino Valley Amateur Astronomers, the museum invites visitors to gaze at stars, planets, the moon and other astronomical phenomena.

The evening features telescope viewing and an opportunity to discuss astronomy with telescope operators. Local food vendors will be onsite including Kona Ice of Redlands, Funnel Kake Frenzy, Sweet Treat Kingdom and So-Cal Pop.

Visitors are welcome to set up portable lawn chairs and blankets for extended viewing and are also encouraged to bring binoculars or set up their own telescopes. The event takes place outdoors and visitors are advised to wear comfortable clothing and shoes.

Not able to visit the museum during evening hours? Stop by during the day instead and see some of the fascinating exhibitions currently on display, including Holding History: 50 Years in Redlands, an exhibit that explores the evolution of the San Bernardino County Museum from its founding to now, with a special emphasis on the relationship between the institution and its community partners over the last 50 years.
