University of Maryland Observatory – OPEN HOUSE
When: Saturday, October 05, 2013 @ 8:45 PM –
Age: All ages
Please confirm event schedule before visiting.
Open House is the primary public event of the University of Maryland Observatory. It is a fixed program held on the 5th and 20th of every month. The Open House consists of a group session followed by a public session. Both sessions have a presentation followed by a tour of the observatory and observing if the weather permits. We make the observing decision on the spot. Open House will be canceled if there is the threat of a tornado, hurricane, or major snow/ice storm and a note will be posted on the homepage. If you arrive earlier, please wait outside or in your car until we signal that you may enter the lecture hall. Before the public session there is usually a group session, and for a number of reasons, we simply cannot let early arrivals into the lecture hall while the group is in there.
