The moon and Venus will be visible after sunset on Friday, Feb. 6, and amateur astronomers and curious skywatchers will be able to view them through Missouri S&T Observatory’s 16-inch telescope.
The observatory will offer another opportunity to view the moon and Venus at 7 p.m. Friday, March 6. There will also be opportunities to view the moon and Saturn at 8 p.m. on April 3 and again on May 1. Viewing is subject to weather conditions.
Built in 1973, the Missouri S&T Observatory is adjacent to the university’s Stonehenge replica on Highway 63 North, north of V.H. McNutt Hall and west of St. Patrick’s Lane.
