UI Telescope Dedication and Star Party

The UI College of Science invites the community to a star party and grand opening celebration of our new telescope, a 20-inch Dall Kirkham reflector. The Vandal Trolley will provide transportation from 7-10 p.m. each night from the bus shelter in front of Wallace Residence Center at 1080 W. Sixth St. Parking is available across the street in Lot 17. No parking is available on site. Please do not drive your vehicle to the observatory. Participants are advised to wear sturdy shoes and to bring lawn chairs and water if needed. Cloudy skies will cancel that night’s event.
