All UCF students are all welcome to visit Robinson Observatory for telescopic views of the night sky. At a typical event, we set up a variety of portable telescopes and point them at various interesting objects such as planets, nebulas, and the Moon. Each telescope is staffed by a knowledgeable volunteer who can explain to you what your seeing, and answer any other questions you have. We also give visitors brief tours of our permanently-mounted, research-quality, 20-inch telescope, and show off some of its astrophotos. More info: http://planets.ucf.edu/observatory/openhouse . Note that weather can force us to cancel an event at the last minute so watch our website for scheduling updates.
