The first Observatory Open House for Fall 2014 will be on Friday, September 12, 2014, beginning at 9:00pm and ending at 10:30pm. If the weather is clear, then we will use the 24 inch telescope in the dome on top of the building to see the sky. If the weather is cloudy, then Dr. Loris Magnani will give a lecture in the physics auditorium (room 202). The topic of his lecture will be "The Gas and Dust in the Milky Way".
If the sky is clear, then visitors should go to the 4th floor of the Physics Building, where they will ascend the staircase that leads to the dome. Visitors do not need to arrive exactly at 9:00pm or before 9:00pm -- we will be open during the whole 9:00pm to 10:30pm timeframe.
