    Description

    The Robert Ferguson Observatory (RFO) is open to the public at least once a month, usually on a Saturday near the time of the New Moon (see schedule below)

    Daytime Solar: Solar telescopes are set up so you can safely look at and listen to our favorite star, the Sun.

    Star Parties: Presentations on astronomical topics are given in the classroom throughout the course of the evening. Starting at dusk, the Observatory's three main telescopes are open for your viewing. Docents set up additional telescopes in front of the building. Friendly and knowledgeable docents are available to answer your questions.

     

    Star Parties: Please arrive within 3 hours after start time to ensure that we remain
    open for you.
