SSU Observatory Grand Opening

The Department of Physics & Astronomy is proud to announce the installation of a new observatory building! Responding to issues with the original 41-year old structure, we have replaced it with a state-of-the-art split roof observatory. We are honored to have SSU President Judy Sakaki joining us for the Grand Opening on Friday, September 8th (7:30 pm arrival, 8 pm ribbon cutting, followed by a reception and public viewing).

 As always, details regarding our Public Viewing Nights are available at including a map showing the location of the Observatory in the southeast corner of campus.
