NOTE: registration is required
- Presentation at 6:00 PM in PHY 313
- Telescope viewing at 6:30 PM (access from 3rd floor of PHY)
The Observatory is open for public tours, offering a chance to look through the university's telescope. This will be preceded by a short talk on astronomy (around 30 minutes) plus an opportunity to ask questions, followed by a tour of the dome.
Please note: in the event of bad weather, the talk and tour of facilities will go ahead, but the observing portion will not be possible (if it's too cloudy to see stars or the Moon with the unaided eye, then we won't be able to see them through the telescope either).
- Register for seats and/or sign-up for the waitlist beginning Feb 12th at 12:00 PM
