UCA Observatory

Join our own Dr. Scott Austin, Associate Professor of Astronomy and Physics, and Director of Astronomical Facilities at UCA, for a look at the heavens (the REAL heavens)!

Between 8pm and 10pm, if the sky is mostly clear, the UCA Observatory will be open to the public for views of planets, stars, star clusters, and nebulae through the 14-inch aperture telescope. Stairs to the observatory are located in the front lobby of Lewis Science Center.

    Yes, Julia, it sounds like a great event for your daughter! Come on down but bring a jacket because it is an open air room with a big sliding door for the telescope so it will get cold fast.

    Yes, as usual I will try to answer any questions.

    Will Dr. Austin be willing to answer annoying questions I might have due to my ignorance of astronomy? I hope so because ignorance is not bliss! Hope everyone is well. :)

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
