Public Star Party!

WHO:
All ages are welcome, but we ask that younger children be under adult supervision at all times. You do
not have to be an OU student to attend.


WHAT:
Every Wednesday night while OU is in session we are welcoming people from the general public to view
the Norman skies through the University's 16-inch telescope! A typical night could include a planet or
two, binary stars, star clusters, or maybe one of the brighter nebulae.


WHERE:
The observatory is located on the East side of Asp just South of Lindsey. Look for the building with
the white dome on top. To reach the roof, climb the exterior staircase on the West side of the building.
Note: Regrettably, the observatory roof is currently wheelchair inaccessible.
We have obtained permission for visitors to park for free in the parking lot to the North of the
observatory on star party evenings.


WHEN:
Wednesday Nights
February 8 to March 7
7:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.


March 14 to May 2
(no viewing March 21)
8:30 p.m. - 10:30 p.m.


Viewing times change throughout the year. To check for current start times and/or weather
