End Date: 3/2/2022End Time: 8:30 PM

Event Description
Calling all stargazers! 🤩
If you’d like to engage in an out of this world telescopic experience, you can pierce the veil of night at Drexel University’s Joseph R. Lynch Observatory. Weather permitting, everyone is invited to join the Lynch Observatory for public nights on the first Wednesday of every month at approximately one half hour after sunset. Viewing sessions take place on the roof of Drexel’s Main Building under the direction of Gordon Richards, a professor in the Department of Physics.
Weather permitting, the Lynch Observatory holds public nights on the first Wednesday of each month about 30 minutes after sunset, except during January, July and August. If the weather is not clear, we encourage visitors to check the 'event status' since the viewing event will typically be cancelled.
Please be sure to check the event status: http://www.physics.drexel.edu/observatory/public.shtml

Mask Safety: Drexel University considers our Lynch observatory and its surrounding roof deck to be indoor spaces. For the remainder of the 2022 season, visitors must wear masks at all times.
