Brooks Observatory

The Brooks Astronomical Observatory, located atop Brooks Hall, is administered by the Department of Physics. The dome contains a modern 16-inch telescope and an observation platform for naked eye or small telescope observing. It offers an excellent view of the campus.

The observatory facilities are open to students and the public one evening each month during the academic year. Weather permitting, visitors can view celestial objects with the telescope. Contact the Department of Physics for open night schedules or to arrange special viewing sessions for groups. Further information about the observatory and the open nights can be found at:
