OU Star Parties

Wed, January 16, 2013

Every Wednesday night while OU is in session, the Physics and Astronomy department sponsors FREE public star parties on the roof of the observatory, which is located on the East side of Asp Avenue just South of Lindsey Avenue. Look for the building with the white dome on top. To reach the roof, climb the exterior staircase on the West side of the building. Note: Regrettably, the observatory roof is currently wheelchair inaccessible. This staircase is the only way to reach the roof.

Viewing times change throughout the year, so please check this page for current observing times and weather cancellations. The final decision on weather cancellations will be made three hours before the scheduled start time at the latest.

Follow  @OUStarParty on Twitter for the viewing times, or for any cancellations due to weather.
