The 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.
