Our third scheduled observing night of the semester! Come join us as we point our telescopes at the Flame Nebula, the Coal Car Cluster and a bunch of other objects! This event is dependent on weather, and will be canceled if there are poor observing conditions. Don't worry if that happens, we will have plenty more events like this!

These events are free and open to everybody! Come and go as you please! Individuals with disabilities are encouraged to attend all University of Iowa sponsored events. If you are a person with a disability who requires a reasonable accommodation in order to participate in this program, please contact the Department of Physics and Astronomy in advance at 319-335-1688.
