Public Invited to View Moon from EIU Observatory


The public is invited to view the moon from Eastern Illinois University’s physics observatory starting at 8 p.m. Friday, March 30.

Even if it’s cloudy, the observatory will be open for tours.

The facility houses a state-of-the-art, computer-controlled, 16-inch Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope. A dome can open and rotate to provide views of all parts of the sky.

The building is located in the southwestern corner of campus between O'Brien Stadium and the intramural softball fields.

Those who attend may park their vehicles in the lot north of Wesley United Methodist Church and then walk to the observatory site.

For more information, please call the physics department at 581-3220.
