Observatory Open House Schedule

Greetings from the University of Georgia Observatory!

The 24 inch telescope has been fixed!

We will be having another public viewing on October 20, 2017. Because of the limited space in the dome, you must have a reservation to come to this showing. Click here to make a reservation.

There will be 2 additional viewings for Fall 2017 on November 10th and December 8th. Check the Reservations Page for details.


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.

You might also be interested in public nights at Sandy Creek Park.

For more information on the Sandy Creek programs call 706-613-3631.
