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 April 7, 2011. The speaker will be Sacramento State astronomer Dr. Chris Taylor, and the title of the public talk is: Astrobiology: Looking for Life in a Big, Empty Universe. You can call the Astronomy Information Line at 278-5828 for updates and information about cancellation due to bad weather. We will have free parking permits available, by email, for those who contact Heidi @ (916) 278-6518 or by 4pm on the day of the event. Otherwise, please purchase tickets at any of the yellow ticket machines on campus. Parking is enforced 24/7.

To find out about stuff in the sky, please see the Sky and Telescope Magazine's Almanac. It defaults the Sacramento region, but can be set to other cities around the world.
