Greetings from the University of Georgia Observatory!
The Department of Physics and Astronomy would like to invite the public to join them for a evening to view the night sky at the department observatory. The observatory is located at the top of the Physics building. To get to the observatory take the elevator to the 4th floor. On the 4th floor you will find a stairway to the observatory that houses the largest telescope, as well as a door that leads to the roof where the smaller telescopes will be set up. As the weather can be unpredictable, we might not know whether a viewing will be possible until shortly before the event begins. In case of inclement weather, there will be a talk.
Here are the open houses for the UGA observatory. Everyone is welcome.
Spring 2013 Observatory Open House
Due to construction and mechanical problems with the large telescope, we are unable to schedule open houses for the Spring. Please check this page periodically for updates.
