Public Observations at the West Georgia Observatory

Friday, April 5, 2013

On Monday, April 8, and Monday, May 6, the West Georgia Observatory will be open for public viewing from 9:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. contingent on the sky being clear. The observatory is one of the premier outreach mechanisms to the community and a major attraction for residents and students alike.

The West Georgia Observatory is located on the University of West Georgia campus and offers public viewings once per month. Last month, comet Pan-STARRS was successfully viewed from the West Georgia Observatory via telescope.
