Winter is the best season for stargazing, and you can enjoy unparalleled views of the night sky during Adler Planetarium’s late-night event, Adler After Dark. Taking place on Thursday, December 15 from 6 pm to 10 pm, this 21+ gathering celebrates the long nights and short days of the winter season.
