Due to impacts to the aircraft’s schedule, all tours scheduled for Monday, January 7-Wednesday, January 9, are cancelled.
AAS attendees will have the opportunity to tour the SOFIA aircraft and learn more about the observatory at Boeing Field, six miles away from the Washington State Convention Center. Tickets may be obtained at the SOFIA booth in the AAS exhibit hall. The tour is open to registered AAS guests. Non-U.S. citizens must provide proof of citizenship.
SOFIA is excited to offer tours of the observatory! SOFIA will be on hand for the AAS meeting and will be based at nearby Boeing Field. Buses will depart the Seattle Convention Center at regular intervals on Monday morning, January 7, and throughout the day on Tuesday, January 8, and Wednesday, January 9. Guests will tour the interior of the observatory while learning more about SOFIA’s recent science observations. There is no cost for the tours, however, space is limited. SOFIA tours are extremely popular, so keep an eye on your inbox for the announcement of the opening day of tour registration!
