The sky is clear, so we will have observing tonight, starting at 8:30!
Despite the beautiful morning, it’s unfortunately going to be cloudy into the evening. Our next Public Observing Night is Tuesday, March 29, 2016 at 8:30pm. See you there!
It was looking like it might have been clear for a while there despite the forecast, but those clouds sure came in fast…
The next night is Wednesday, March 16 at 8pm.
Below is the observing schedule for the Spring 2016 term. Remember that observing can only happen if it’s clear, so make sure to check back here (or on Twitter: @StickneyObs) on the evening of observing. The nights for the Spring are:

- Wednesday, March 16 at 2016, 8:00pm

There will be no public observing over the winter field work term break. Observing will resume after the spring term starts. Check back here in late February for details of the Spring observing schedule.
It looks like the weather isn’t going to clear by tonight, so observing night has been cancelled.
This was our last public observing night of the term, but we were able to have several really great nights. Thanks for the great year, and keep your eyes out at the beginning of the Spring term for next term’s schedule!
Sorry for the late notice, but it looks like clouds have rolled in. Observing night has been cancelled for the evening.
I was hopeful that the storm wouldn’t actually come in, but obviously that was misguided. Observing night is cancelled for tonight. Here’s hoping for clear skies on October 7th!
Public observing has been scheduled for the Fall 2015 term. We will be open for observing:

As always, public nights are free and open to the public. Public observing typically runs for approximately 1-1.5 hours, depending on the number of people who show up. Also, public observing is “weather permitting,” so please make sure to check back here or on twitter (@StickneyObs) after 5pm on the day of the observing to see if we will be able to observe that night.
We are currently working on the schedule for Fall 2015 Public Observing. Check back here soon for the latest information!
