Open to public every Thursday at 7:30PM during the Fall/Winter academic semester, and twice a month on Tuesday evenings at 8:30pm during the Summer term in Sherzer 402, the Astronomy Lab.
Come see the wonders of the universe through Eastern Michigan University's 10-inch apochromatic refractor telescope and via computerized telescopes on our scenic observation deck. On clear meeting nights, the observatory will be opened to stargaze. On cloudy nights, presentations or planetarium shows will be held indoors. Jupiter still dominates the evening sky but Saturn and especially Mars are shining nicely in the south near ruddy Antares during late evening hours. Bring a light jacket just in case the sky happens to be clear!
