The public is invited to view the Double Cluster in the Perseus constellation through Missouri University of Science and Technology’s 16-inch-diameter telescope on Thursday, Nov. 16.
The Missouri S&T Observatory will open its doors at 8 p.m. for the viewing. The sky must be clear for observing, and the session length will vary.
Viewings at the observatory are free of charge and no reservations are required. Each observing session is open-ended. Children are welcome to attend but must be accompanied by an adult.
This is the fifth scheduled Visitors’ Night this semester. The next Visitors’ Night is scheduled for 8 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 12. All viewings are subject to weather conditions.
Built in 1973, the Missouri S&T Observatory is located at 1550 N. Bishop Ave. (Highway 63 North), adjacent to the university’s Stonehenge replica, north of McNutt Hall and west of St. Patrick’s Lane.
