The College of Charleston Observatory will be open to the public tonight from 7:30 until 9:00 pm. There is no cost to attend and people of all ages are welcome.

Astronomy Professor Laura Penny said through a release from the college that the Moon, Venus, and possibly Uranus and Neptune would be visible tonight. Other astronomers from the Department of Physics and Astronomy will be on-hand to assist, direct, and answer any questions observers may have.

If you would like to attend, here are some important pieces of information:

  • Attendees should enter at the Rita Liddy Hollings Science Center at 58 Coming Street then check in with the Society of Physics Students host.
  • Open-toe shoes are not permitted on the observing deck
  • If you plan to bring a large group (10 or more) or if you will need special accommodations, please contact Chris True at [email protected] or 843-953-2031.
