The observatory is open for family, friends, alumni, and students for viewing various celestial objects once a month on Saturday nights.
If you are planning to attend, please email Frank Mikan (firstname.lastname@example.org
) a week before the session in order for us to have an idea of the number of people planning to attend. Each session will run for two hours usually from 9-11 p.m. or 8-10 p.m.
This event is very dependent on the weather. Even a light haze tends to wash out the sky because of the city lights. If the skies are hazy or partly cloudy, I will let you know about any cancellations by sending you an email. Thank you for your interest.
I hope to see many of you this year out under the starry skies!
