Open Houses at the RIT Observatory, Fall 2014. We'll update the information below with weather forecasts as each date approaches.

  • Friday, Oct 3: Get started early on Astronomy Day, 2014!
    8:00 - 10:00 PM. Come to see the first-quarter Moon, the mysterious outer planets Uranus and Neptune, and the Andromeda Galaxy through our telescopes. If the weather is bad, we'll provide a presentation on two spacecraft which have just reached the planet Mars: NASA's MAVEN and the Indian Mars Orbiter Mission.
  • Saturday, Dec 13: The Geminid meteor shower will be at its best this evening, so come and watch it with us. Dress warmly!
