The Observatory, run by the Department of Physics and Astronomy, is located at College Camp. Public observing opportunities occur throughout the year and are advertised through the Department. Don't forget that all viewings are subject to the weather.

Each observing night will be preceded by a public planetarium show at 7:00 p.m. where the constellations, stars, and planets of the evening will be introduced, along with a short movie. Please bear in mind that due to the frequent cloudy or inclement weather in upstate New York, many observing nights will inevitably be canceled.
