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.

There are currently no public observing nights scheduled.  Please check back to view any updates.  You can also request to be added to our astronomy event email distribution list so you're sure to be notified of the next event.  If you have any questions, please call Heidi Yamazaki @ (916) 278-6518 or send an email to if you have questions.
