The College of Charleston Observatory will be open to the public tomorrow from 6:30 until 8:00 pm. There is no cost to attend and people of all ages are welcome.

Astronomy Professor Laura Penny said through a press that Jupiter would be the only “naked-eye” planet visible tonight, but star-gazers will also be able to see Orion, Taurus, Gemini, Canis Major and Minor and more.

Other astronomers from the Department of Physics and Astronomy will be on-hand to assist, direct, and answer any questions observers may have.

If you would like to attend, here are some important pieces of information:

  • Attendees should enter at the Rita Liddy Hollings Science Center at 58 Coming Street then check in with the Society of Physics Students host.
  • Open-toe shoes are not permitted on the observing deck
  • If you plan to bring a large group (10 or more) or if you will need special accommodations, please contact Chris True at truec@cofc.edu or 843-953-2031.
