Public Observing Night

8:00 PM  - 11:00 PM
Monday Sep 11, 2017
Olin-Rice Science Center 404
Take the southwest staircase or elevator to reach the fourth floor.

The Macalester College observatory hosts regular public observing nights on our very own 16-inch rooftop telescope! Hop on the shuttle as we explore the cosmos and ponder the infinite. Weather permitting, potential targets include the Moon, planets, globular clusters, open clusters, galaxies, planetary nebulae, and binary star systems. In the case of bad weather, we can’t open the dome for observing; however, we’ll still be present to show the facility and answer questions.

All are welcome! We’re obsessed with the cosmos and we could talk about it forever (roughly a Hubble time). Bring your friends, bring a date, or come alone!

Hope to see you there!

This event is for: Alumni, Students, Staff, Faculty, Parents and Families and Public
