Brave the Winter Weather for a Night at the Widener University Observatory

Free Public Viewings of the Night Sky



The Widener University Observatory invites you to explore the universe using its 12- and 16-inch computerized reflecting telescopes. Attend free public viewings on Monday, Jan. 31 from 6-7 p.m. and Monday, Feb. 7, 14 and 21 from 7-8 p.m. The observatory will also host a Friday evening viewing on Feb. 4 from 8-9 p.m.

Widener astronomy professors, with assistance from undergraduate students, will point out planets, stars and other celestial wonders to help attendees get a complete tour of the night sky.

Because space is limited, participants are encouraged to register in advance. To register, or for more information, visit www.widener.edu/stargazing or call 610-499-4003.

The Widener University Observatory is located on the 5th floor of Kirkbride Hall on 17th and Walnut streets in Chester, Pa.
