The general public is invited to join astronomers John Zielinski, Shashi Kanbur, and Natalia Lewandowska for an evening at Rice Creek Field Station's observatory. Participants will have the chance to gaze through the observatory's large 16" wide telescope inside the rotating dome to view celestial objects like the moon, the bright planets, galaxies, nebulae, and star clusters.


Since clear weather is needed for observing the night sky, interested participants should call (315) 312-6620 after 7 pm on the evening of each event to hear a recorded message announcing whether or not the observation session will take place that evening.  Prior to the evening of the event, this same number can be dialed to access a pre-recorded detailed description of the upcoming session.


The upcoming 2023 dates (weather dependent) include:

  • Jan: Fri 1/27, Sat 1/28
  • Mar: Fri 3/31
  • April: Sat 4/1


For questions about this program, please reach out to Rice Creek Field Station staff at 315-312-6677 or


Rice Creek Field Station, a unit of SUNY Oswego, is located 1.5 miles south of campus at 193 Thompson Road in Oswego.
