Event and Road Closure Information
Event activities will take place in the Madison-MacDonald Observatory and the NESB building (denoted by the blue arrows). Please note East Drive will be closed in front of the observatory, so that we can enhance your observation experience. On the map, the red lines designate where the street will be closed.
Activities start at 8:00 p.m. and celestial observing will begin at sundown, after 9:00 p.m. Hands-on activities will be hosted in both the Observatory and the NESB building.
At 8:30 p.m., Dr. Roger Culver, emeritus professor, will give a lecture entitled, “Why We Haven’t Been Back to the Moon in 50 Years.” This will be held in the NESB building, room A304.
There are plenty of parking options near the Observatory, including street parking on Mason St. You can park anywhere outlined in this map. The first floor of the South College Avenue Parking Garage is 24 hour paid parking, but higher floors are free after 4:00 p.m. on Friday’s. Please note, the lot labelled F442 is a federal government parking lot and you will be towed if you park there.
