OBSERVATORY: Open House
Each semester we invite the general public (faculty, staff, students and the community members) to attend an open house at the EKU Observatory. During these occasions, we use the telescopes (two 11 inches and several 6 inches of aperture) to show the night sky.
We will host the next event on Friday, Oct. 11, starting at 8 p.m.
We will observe the first quarter Moon, the planet Venus, and deep sky objects. In the event of cloudy skies, the Open House will be rescheduled for the next day, Saturday, Oct. 12.
We will leave a message at Telescope Deck Hotline (622-2012) the day of the event for confirmation by 6:45 p.m. on Oct. 11.
