Fall 2022 Public Telescope Viewig: Fridays, September 16th to December 9th.

The Minnesota Institute for Astrophysics is part of the University of Minnesota and is dedicated to bringing the excitement of modern astrophysical research to the Minnesota public. Throughout the year, they host public programs including the summer Universe in the Park series, Friday night observing sessions during the school-year, and school and group presentations.

Friday Night Astrophysics Public Viewing Schedule

MIfA hopes to share its passion of astronomy through a series of scheduled public viewings. These viewings are outdoors, so dress appropriately. You can find the Friday Night Schedule here. The presentation begins at 8:00 pm in the Tate Laboratory of Physics, room 510-02. Telescope observing usually begins at 8:30 pm. Keep in mind that this program is only run when the University is in session and the page is kept up by students. It is not always up-to-date or accurate. We HIGHLY recommend checking ahead to avoid disappointment.
