Scheduled Public Programs

April 15, 2017, 8:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m.  –  Observatory Open House

On Sat., April 15, the ASU Observatory will be open to the public for a star tour and deep-sky viewing.  We will spend some time showing visitors how to use the free star charts we will have available, and we will also give a tour of the visible constellations and bright stars.  Also, there will be multiple telescopes available for viewing double stars, nebulae, star clusters, and more.  Arrive any time between 8 and 10 and stay however long you like.

This open house is free and open to the public. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Note that observatory events are always weather dependent. If the weather does not permit viewing the sky, this event will be cancelled.


If you would like to be notified of upcoming public programs, send me an email asking to be placed on the planetarium/observatory email list:

There is no parking at the observatory. You should park on the west side of Stadium Drive (or some other legal street location) or in the parking lot at the south end of the soccer field, and then walk to the observatory. Look for banners pointing the way on Open House nights, and the red sidewalk lights next to the 1st base line batting cages to guide you there.
