McDowell Observatory Reopening Wednesday June 22

We are pleased to announce that the William D. McDowell Observatory in DeKorte Park will reopen for public viewing nights this coming Wednesday, June 22, from 8:30 to 10:30 p.m.

Visitors can view planets, constellations and other celestial objects through the Observatory’s  research-grade telescope. The telescope has a 20-inch mirror and is housed beneath a six-meter retractable dome. The powerful, precision instrument can capture objects millions of light years away.

The Observatory is open to the public for free every Wednesday year-round, weather permitting and excluding holidays. All ages are welcome. Visitors must be able to climb 25 steps in a spiral formation.
