Public Observing Night

Please join the University of Iowa Physics & Astronomy Department as we use the Van Allen Observatory and small telescopes to tour the spring sky. To attend this Astronomy observation session, follow the signs in Van Allen Hall to reach the roof (access is on the 7th floor, east end). 

The most convenient elevator to use is the East elevator, which is on the far end of the building from the main N. Dubuque Street entrance.

For this Public Observing Night, we will also have a Children's Storytime in Van Allen Hall 665 at 8:30PM; Physics & Astronomy major Mary Haag will be reading the book she wrote, Burning Bright!
