"Site from your Seat" Presentation
Learn about Green Bank Observatory history and information from the comfort of a seated outdoor setting!
Our Tour Guide will lead you through the fascinating world of radio astronomy - from the pioneering instruments of the 1950s to the world’s premier telescope, the GBT! Presentation includes demos to further your understanding! The presentation lasts approximately 30 minutes, then the Tour Guide will lead you on a short walk (or drive your car!) to our observation deck, which will give you a great view and photo opportunity with the Green Bank Telescope!
A face mask must be worn over your mouth and nose throughout the entire program. Tour tickets include disposable mask. You can add a GBO mask, water bottle, or any other item to your cart and pick up when you come for your tour!
