J. Weiskopf Observatory

View distant wonders in the night skies.

The J. Weiskopf Observatory, with its 11” Celestron reflecting telescope, is available for public viewing and special programs.  During the weekly FREE public viewing sessions, experienced staff will guide you through the night skies. Visitors will see the planets, the moon, and fainter objects in the sky. Free public viewing is every Saturday beginning at dark for three hours after dark. During June, July, and August, the observatory is also open on Tuesday nights. Special events and programs are offered as amazing events take place in our skies like meteor showers, solar and lunar eclipses, and when a planet is easily visible.
