Look up at the stars
Our Plaza offers a pleasant venue for viewing the evening skies, and one of the best views of the Bay! Although the Hall no longer offers monthly facilitated stargazing sessions, we encourage anyone with an interest in the skies to take advantage of the views from our Plaza.
Enjoy an evening of stargazing on the Hall's Plaza.
Enjoy the twinkle of the city lights along the San Francisco Bay in addition to the twinkle of the stars and constellations above your head. Bring your own binoculars or telescope, and share the Universe with your family and friends!
