Free public access is from 8:30 to 10 on Monday and Wednesday nights this month — weather permitting, of course.
(Note: The observatory will be closed on Monday, May 27, for Memorial Day.)
Dress for the weather; with the dome open, you are basically outside.
Each evening at least two major objects in the night sky will be viewed, plus one or two other celestial objects or events depending on the observing conditions.
