Observe the wonders of the universe at Owl Observatory! The Observatory now features a 16" Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope. In addition, telescopes of all kinds will be set up near the observatory, located at the Kalamazoo Nature Center (7000 North Westnedge Ave.).
Upcoming observing date:
Saturday, July 17
Highlights of the night include Venus and the first quarter Moon.
Observing Begins: 9:30 pm
Along with observing through telescopes, KAS members will be on hand at the start of each session to conduct a Telescope Clinic. Beginners can learn how to properly setup and use their telescopes.
Each session also features a Constellation Workshop. Learn to read a simple star map (provided free of charge) and find bright stars and constellations on your own. The workshop is followed by a guided tour of the night sky.
Sessions will be canceled if the sky is mostly cloudy or overcast. For cancellation information, please visit the KAS website starting at 6:00 pm on the day of the session.
