Stargazers, students and interested members of the Rochester community are invited to an open house at the Rochester Institute of Technology Observatory at 8 p.m. Friday, Sept. 13.

“The first quarter moon and globular cluster M13 will be the main subjects, but visitors may also be able to glimpse Saturn, Uranus and several artificial satellites,” says Michael Richmond, physics professor and director of the RIT Observatory.

Cloudy skies could postpone the event to Sept. 14 or cancel it completely. Check for status updates at www.rit.edu/cos/observatory/.
