Programs and Events

Please note that the Observatory is not open daily, but only during scheduled events. 

Our public nights are first and foremost a time to view the skies through our telescopes and to pose your favorite questions to the astronomers hosting the evening.

Exploring the Stars (EtS) is our main educational public outreach program that runs on week nights. Our goal is to offer educational astronomy activities for elementary and secondary school students, university students, and the general public.
