Public Observatory Viewings
Dr. Joseph Trout and our student physicists will guide visitors through a tour of the night sky. Observatory viewing events will be offered throughout the academic semester. Each viewing night has been chosen based on a featured object for that evening. Attendees should dress according to the weather.

When is the raindate?
Before you head out to the observatory, please look up at the night’s sky. If there is cloud coverage, the viewing night will need to be cancelled. A notice will be posted on the website as well.
Does this event repeat?
This event will be held on multiple dates each month.
Is the event indoors or outdoors?Outdoor
Is registration required?Yes
Due to the popularity of the reopening, we are expecting larger than normal crowds. You will need to make a reservation through the booking system. Because the system does not allow a cap on the number of visitors, but rather a specified timeframe, reservations are set at the lowest time to accommodate a larger number of visitors. Please choose a reservation in 5-minute intervals, but note, the observatory will be open for 2 hours on viewing nights. Each visitor will have ample time at the telescope. One reservation may be used for up to groups of four.
