(UPDATE: 8:30AM Feb. 14): Due to the evening forecast calling for partly cloudy skies plus telescope operator illness, tonight’s public viewing is cancelled.
Our next public viewing is tentatively scheduled for Thursday, February 14, from 7:00-9:00PM. (If there are many storm-related closures of UPEI on Thursdays, this date may have to be shifted to accommodate the teaching of an evening laboratory class.)
Our observatory is on the rooftop of UPEI’s Memorial Hall, but we ask that you come first to room 417 to wait for your turn to go up to the telescope (find information on finding Memorial Hall and where to park on campus here).
It is necessary to climb a flight of stairs to reach the telescope, but the elevator can be taken up to the 4th floor waiting room.
