minidomeAstronomy Club

An EMU student-based organization but welcoming to the public every Tuesday 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 may be held indoors. Venus is a brilliant beacon in the SW evening sky early this semester with ruddy but much fainter Mars keeping pace nearby. Dress for Michigan in winter just in case the sky happens to be clear!

Summer 2017  Astronomy Club Schedule:

Meetings begin at 8:30pm in Sherzer 402 and are open to the public on select Tuesday evenings. The observatory is scheduled to be open on  CLEAR Tuesday nights after the meetings, IF clear.  Call 734-487-3033 to verify if we're open.  If someone answer, odds are we are!
