    My wife and I are both very interested in Astronomy. We don’t have any children (ones on the way though). My question is this: Is this a children focused event? Would two adults without kids seem weird? :)

    Hello Brian! Of course you and your wife are more than welcome to participate in this activity. It is geared towards everyone, young and old, with/without children. We’ve included it on our calendar because it is a great activity for families as well. We hope you make it out to Astronomy Night! They hold it at different locations throughout the year:
