Observatory Open House Schedule
Greetings from the University of Georgia Observatory!
We will be hosting three observatory viewings during Fall 2018:
September 7, 2018 9:00-10:00 pm
If the skies are clear, we will be looking at Jupiter and Saturn.
October 12, 2018 8:00-9:00 pm
If the skies are clear, we will be looking at the crescent Moon, Saturn, and Mars.
November 2, 2018 8:00-9:00 pm
If the skies are clear, we will be looking at Saturn and Mars.
As before, these events are free, but due to limited space in the observatory dome, reservations will be required for attendance. We will begin taking reservations for these viewings on Tuesday, August 14th at 12:00pm (Noon) with our online reservation system.
The observatory is located at the top of the Physics building. To get to the observatory take the elevator to the 4th floor. A guide will meet you on the 4th floor and direct your group to the stairway that leads to the observatory. As the weather can be unpredictable, we might not know whether a viewing will be possible until shortly before the event begins.
If you need more information please call 706-542-2485.
