The Carthage College Society of Physics Students and the Tremper Astronomical Society will be hosting public viewing nights at the Griffin Observatory on the Kemper Center campus.
These events are free and open to the public. Guests are encouraged to dress warmly. Some stair climbing is required; we encourage children who are accompanied by adults.
The Griffin Observatory allows adventurers to see the universe from a historic setting, using modern technology. Following a four-year renovation, the 19th century astronomy laboratory has taken on new life as a stargazing, teaching and recreation facility.
