Telescope Observation Nights
Friday | April 06, 2018 , 8:30 pm - 10:00 pmFree
Explore the sky with astronomers from the Bell and the Minnesota Institute for Astrophysics (MIfA). FREE telescope observing nights take place every Friday during the University’s Fall and Spring semesters. These are very informal and family-friendly, and you can arrive and leave at any time.
Each evening starts with a special science presentation by MIfA graduate students. Bell astronomers will bring special activities on select dates (see below). After the talk, the evening will continue with telescope observing. Bell Museum and MIfA staff provide the telescopes and guide you through observations of the same celestial objects that have inspired sky-gazers throughout history!
