We give tours and star parties for scout groups and other public groups on weekdays and Saturdays (except Wednesdays). The tours and star parties are subject to weather and availability. Questions concerning these can be directed to our email [email protected] We now have telescopes available for travelling to off-campus locations for star parties. These are considered per-request and are left to the discretion of the observatory staff.

Be sure to sign our guest log while you are enjoying the sky to be a part of the observatory’s history and to help track attendance.
