Gaze into the night sky, learn about planets and stars, and come back often because this series looks at what’s happening in the skies at all times of the year. Faculty and students from the DePauw Astronomy Department bring telescopes that mount on stands that ring the perimeter of McKim Observatory, and guests are invited to use them to see what’s hot in the sky on this particular night. The Clark 9.53-inch refactor will also be open for viewing the planets, moon, star clusters, nebulae, and galaxies.
This family-friendly event is free, and all are welcome. To arrange a visit to McKim or setup a special tour, call the Department of Physics and Astronomy (765-658-4654)
