Event description

Description

The Dyer Observatory telescopes will be set up for gazing (weather permitting), and the observatory will be open for viewing exhibits and speaking with astronomers. The format is "open house" so you may arrive and depart any time during the event. There will not be a formal talk/program on these nights unless otherwise noted. Suggested for ages 8 and up.

This Telescope Night has been resecheduled from October 11.

Please note:

  • You do not need to bring a printed ticket; there will be a guest list at the gate.
  • The exhibits on the main floor are handicapped accessible, but the Seyfert telescope on the second floor is only accessible by stairs. There are twenty steps, split by a large landing, leading to the dome. Climbing additional portable steps may be necessary to see through the eyepiece.
  • Notify the gate attendant if you have special parking needs.
  • For the safety of all observatory guests, closed-toe footwear must be worn.
  • If your plans change and you cannot attend, you may invite someone you know to use your tickets/names for entry.
  • Because this is Vanderbilt University property, firearms and smoking are not allowed.
