Astronomy Open House

In the
Kennon Observatory
at the
University of Mississippi

 

We plan to resume the Astronomy Open Houses starting August 15th, pending conditions.

 

We offer astronomy open houses that are centered around viewings with our telescopes. We view the Moon, the planets, as well as double stars, though what we can see varies each month, depending on what is visible in the night sky during each scheduled open house.

The current schedule is:

  • August        15   8:00 –   10:00 PM
  • September  12   7:00 –   10:00 PM
  • October      10   7:00 –   9:30 PM
  • November   14   5:30 –   7:00 PM
  • December    12   5:00 –   7:00 PM
  • January         9   5:30 –   7:30 PM

All these events are weather permitting. Admission is free.
Children are welcome!
