Fall Public Observing Nights Begin on 8/30!

Our Department is proud to announce that weekly Public Observing Nights will resume on Friday 8/30!  Public observing nights provide an opportunity for children and adults of all ages to view the night sky with the guidance of professional astronomers using the telescopes from UF’s Campus Teaching Observatory.  Details about public nights including directions to the facility can be found on our Public Nights webpage.   As always, public observing nights are offered on a weather-permitting basis, and so we encourage all interested parties to check the weather or by calling (352) 392-1016 after 8:00pm for a recorded message.
