Events at Sacramento State

Public observing nights are held at least once a semester at Sacramento State. We meet in the early evening for a general interest talk on a topic in astronomy, followed by observing at the campus observatory on the roof of Amador Hall.

The next public observing night is scheduled for Tuesday, October 7, 2014. The speaker will be Sacramento State lecturer Dr. Seth Hillbrand, and the title of the public talk is: Why is the Night Sky Dark?  You can call the Astronomy Information Line at 278-5828 for updates and information about cancellation due to bad weather as the date gets closer.  Free parking permits are available on the second page of the flyer (click the title of the talk) and on the third page is a map you should carry with you to know where to go.  Note that after 4:30pm, student permits are valid in ALL spaces, including faculty and staff.  Please call Heidi @ (916) 278-6518 or send an email if you have questions.
