  • Observatory Stargazing – Autumn 2022 Open House Nights
    Mittelman Observatory will again host stargazing open house nights this autumn. These Observatory events are scheduled for Friday evenings, September 16, October 7, and October 28, from 8:30 PM until 10:00 PM, weather permitting. Jupiter and Saturn will be in the evening sky on some of these dates. A variety of interesting stars, star clusters, and nebulae will be visible through the Observatory’s telescopes. The Observatory includes a 24-inch telescope in a dome and smaller telescopes on the roof deck. COVID-19 policies and best practices may mean that not all telescopes may be open and that masks may be required of attendees.

    Observatory open house nights are free and open to the public. However, these events will take place only if the sky is expected to be mostly clear. Please check the Observatory web site or call the Observatory at 443-2266 after 6:30 PM on the evening of the event for weather status.
