The CSI Observatory (Building 6n), located next to the campus track, has now posted its schedule for the fall. The observatory is open to all, free of charge ( donations are not refused).
If you have never been to an observatory or you are bringing young folks, we suggest you visit on one of our moon (lunar) observing nights.
Unfortunately, the bright Planets of Jupiter, Saturn, and Venus that we saw in the spring are not available during the early evenings, this fall. But they are up a few hours before sunrise. Jupiter will return to more favorable hours in the spring.
Observing is weather-dependent. Our schedule and details (perhaps too much!) about coming to the Observatory are posted online.
Information about the observatory, its relationship to the Astronomy/Astrophysics program and our Asteroid Research Program can be found directly via the quick links at the CSI Website.
Feel free to contact me for information or any astronomical query.
