Observe the evening sky through telescopes during Observatory Open House nights at the Edelman Planetarium at Rowan University. Astronomy faculty and club members are on-hand to operate the telescopes and guide visitors as they view objects in the night sky. Our Open Houses are free and open to everyone!
Observatory Open Houses are offered once a month during each semester. They begin in the planetarium with a brief virtual preview of the night sky. Visitors are then escorted to the 4th floor observatory, where they will participate in observations of the night sky through our 16″ research telescope in the observatory dome and smaller telescopes on the observation deck.
Attendees observe through telescopes outside, so be sure to dress for the weather! Weather calls are posted by 2:00 pm.
