Observatory Open House

Friday, October 21st, starting at 8:30pm Eastern Daylight Time. If the skies are clear, then we will be able to see the planet Jupiter, the large galaxy Andromeda and a myriad of stars and constellations. Coincidentally, the Orionid meteor shower will peak on the night of the 21st. It is best viewed from darker locations outside the city and later in the night, but lucky visitors to the Observatory Open House might glimpse a meteor.

University astronomers soon can resume a full schedule of monthly open houses, when anyone interested can come to the UGA Observatory atop the Physics Building on South Campus and have a look at whatever celestial body the telescope is trained on.

At the next public viewing, scheduled for 8 p.m. Thursday, the telescope will likely be focused on the planet Jupiter, visible after dark this fall as a glittering "star" high in the southern sky
