The FHSU Astronomy Club exists to give both students and the public the opportunity to observe the night sky with telescopes located on the Tomanek Hall Observation Deck and in the Albertson Hall astronomy tower. Student members staff the Observation Deck and host public events so that community members may utilize the telescopes.
Observatory hours for the Spring 2014 semester: Tuesday and Wednesday evenings, 7:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.
2014S semester Astronomy Club meetings: Every other Tuesday, starting Jan 28, at 7:00 p.m. in TH201!
Send questions or comments to the club advisors. For more information about student organizations on the FHSU campus, visit the Center for Student Involvement.
