Visit the Kirkwood Observatory
Located at the edge of campus between the woods and where Indiana Avenue meets 4th street, this building is the most obvious and accessible of our facilities. It houses a 0.3 meter (12 inch) refracting telescope which is staffed for free public viewing each Wednesday evening, March through November, when classes are in session. If the weather is clear, the observatory will be open shortly after sunset. No reservations are necessary.
