Fan Mountain Observatory Public Open House, Friday, April 25, 2014

Fan Mountain ObservatoryThe University of Virginia’s Astronomy Department will be hosting its Spring Open House at Fan Mountain Observatory on Friday, April 25 from dusk (about 8 pm) until about 11:30 pm.  All club members are invited to bring their telescopes, binoculars and any astronomical knowledge to share with the public.  Public attendees need to request free tickets by sending a self-addressed stamped envelope to the University of Virginia Astronomy Department.  Tickets typically run out about a month before the event so public attendees need to get their request in early.

This event was rained out this year but there still were over 100 visitors.
