Public invited to look to the
skies at University observatory

Sacramento State is hosting a pair of free public viewing nights at the campus observatory. The viewings—at 9 p.m. on Friday, April 28 and Friday, May 5 on the roof of Amador Hall—will be led by physics and astronomy professor Christopher Taylor.

The viewing will be preceded at 8 p.m. by a talk on Taylor’s research, "Galaxy Formation in a Cosmic Blender: Tidal Dwarf Galaxies and Molecular Gas in Stephan's Quintet," in Mendocino Hall 1015.

In the event of rain or clouds, the viewings will be cancelled, but the talks will still be held.

For more information, contact Taylor at (916) 278-5828. Media assistance is available by contacting the Sacramento State public affairs office at (916) 278-6156.
