This fall the University of St. Thomas Observatory will open its doors for monthly public observing programs.

The first event will take place Wednesday, Nov. 28. Each event will begin in Owens Science Hall, Room 150 (3M Auditorium), with a short talk of approximately 30 minutes followed by a Q-and-A session. Afterward, visitors are welcome to tour the observatory and, if weather permits, observe the night sky.

The first two events will feature short talks by Dr. Elizabeth Wehner:

  • Wednesday, Nov. 28 – “Exploring the Solar System”
  • Wednesday, Dec. 12 – “The Milky Way: Our Galaxy, Our Home”
