HAPPENING ON CAMPUS
Monday, April 14th
Detroit Observatory Viewing; 8-9:30pm, Detroit Observatory (next to Couzens Hall)
This is your chance to look through the 1857 Fitz refractor. The Detroit Observatory in Ann Arbor is a 19th century building, so things move at a 19th century pace. You must be able to climb stairs to get to the telescope. Criteria for opening the dome: It must be between 40º and 90º F, less than 80% humidity, and less than 10% chance of rain. We prefer less than 50% cloud cover, though that depends on the clouds (thin vs. thick) and what's out. Get updates on the Detroit Observatory Viewing Nights website, or look for the Detroit Observatory on Facebook.
