It's our Fall Open House at the RIT Observatory!

  • Saturday, Oct 8, 6:00 - 8:00 PM

    RIT Observatory joins NASA and skywatchers around the world for International Observe the Moon Night.

    We'll set up our telescopes so that you can get a good look at the first-quarter moon -- as long as the skies are clear. But we'll also have family-friendly activities which will happen indoors, regardless of the weather. You can find out why the Moon changes its phase, from New to Full and back again, and learn about the craters which mark its surface.
