Highland Road Park Observatory

Friday Night Lecture Series

7:30pm to 8:30pm

Originating years ago as a weekly outdoor presentation, HRPO's cornerstone program—now indoors—provides free, entertaining and intelligent science talks to the citizens of the Baton Rouge area.

Perennially favorite speakers and topics are interspersed through the calendar year with surprising new guests and new concepts. The lectures are aimed toward a general adult audience, though most high-schoolers have no trouble enjoying them. No expertise in the physical sciences is required.

After the talk and question-and-answer session, the 20 inch OGS is unlocked (weather permitting) for viewing until 10:00 pm.
