    • Friday, October 3, 8-10 PM if the skies are clear. Join Carleton's resident astronomers to view the moon, stars, planets,  and nebulas.  The event will be cancelled at the last minute if cloudy.  Dress for the weather, since you'll either use a telescope outside or in the domes, which are neither heated nor cooled.

      Open houses are open to the community and held the first Friday of each month. Times vary.  A schedule is on the web at http://go.carleton.edu/observatory

    • Come view a total lunar eclipse at Goodsell Observatory or watch it at home! The observatory will be open (if it's clear) Tuesday morning, April 15th, from 1-3:30 AM (that's TONIGHT, for you night owls!). Totality, when the moon usually turns a beautiful red, is from 2:06 to 3:25. The Earth's shadow takes its first real bite out of the Moon at 12:58. We will have the 16" telescope open in the dome and several other telescopes and binoculars available on the pad outside. If you don't want to come all the way here in the middle of the night, binoculars at home will do quite well!

    • Carleton College Light Pollution Presentations and Observatory Open House Friday, May 2

      Carleton College's Department of Physics and Astronomy welcomes the public to two events this Friday.   Presentations will begin at 8 pm in Olin 141 on the environmental impacts and health consequences of artificial light at night,  as well as actions that can be taken to protect our dwindling natural resource of darkness at night.  The research leading up to the presentations was done in a class led by astronomy professor Cindy Blaha.

      If it is clear, the presentations will be followed by a Goodsell Observatory Open House from 9-11 pm for personal sampling of dark sky views, nebulas, and planets; as well as urban sky glow. Dress warmly!  The open house (but not the presentations) will be cancelled if it is cloudy.

      Light Pollution Presentations:  8-9 PM, Olin 141

      Goodsell Observatory Open House 9-11 PM only if clear

       

    • THIS Friday from 8:30-10:30 pm, please join us in the Goodsell Observatory for our monthly open house. 

      This event is open to the community!  Make sure to dress warmly, because you'll either be outside
