Observatory

Don't just settle for pictures. Use our telescopes to see the moon's craters, the rings of Saturn, and other celestial phenomena on a clear (or mostly clear) night.

You will have to dress appropriately because the temperature of the observatory is the same as that outside. We regret that the observatory is not accessible at this time to people who cannot climb stairs

For more information, contact our department or  Planetarium Director Ronald Kaitchuck.
