Fan Mountain Observatory

Each April and each October, a public night is held at the Fan Mountain Observing Station, 13 miles south of town. Tickets, which are free, are required for Fan Mountain. Each public night includes observing with all of the telescopes (weather permitting), slide shows, and tours of the Observatory. Owing to the demand for tickets, groups cannot be accommodated at Fan Mountain. All faculty and graduate students participate through a rotating schedule. Call for more information.
