Frank & Earnest

The Observatory is open to the public every second or third Wednesday of the month rain or shine at 7:30pm (8:30pm during daylight saving time). Please call 718-262-2082 for more information.

Except for special events, we will meet in Room 2E01 and then move to the 4th floor terrace on the G corridor of the Academic Core Building of the College to view the stars and planets by eye as well as with the observatory's instruments.  If the weather is poor, we will enjoy activities and/or a topical lecture.
