Public Viewing Session
There will be a public viewing session at the SFA Observatory on Friday, April 12, 2013 at 8:00PM (weather permitting).
These viewing sessions are intended for visitors of all ages and are free of charge. Since these are outdoor events, poor weather conditions may force a cancellation. Check this site again a 2 hours before the tour to make sure that the tour has not been canceled due to poor weather.
The night will begin a sky tour of the constellations with a green laser. SFA SPS students will operate the telescope and show visitors stars, clusters, nebulae, double stars, and perhaps the planet Mars.
For large groups please email firstname.lastname@example.org in advance so that we can have additional help available.
Public viewing sessions are sponsored by the Society of Physics Students and the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Stephen F. Austin State University.
