You've heard of constellations -- patterns of stars in the sky that inspired tales of heroes and monsters and animals. But can you recognize any of the classic figures used by astronomers today?

Come to the RIT Observatory Open House on Monday, Apr 22, and learn how to recognize Leo the Lion, Gemini the Twins, and maybe even Virgo the Lady. See our guide to the event.

Our open house will run from 8:30 PM to 10:00 PM. Bring some pencils, crayons, and a flashlight.

Status on Mon, Apr 22: The forecast calls for mostly clear skies tonight, so this Open House is ON! See you tonight!
