The general public is invited to join astronomers John Zielinski, Scott Roby, 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, constellations, and planets such as Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn. 


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.


The upcoming 2022 dates (weather dependent) include:

  • Sept: Fri 2nd, Sat 3rd, Sun 4th
  • Sept/Oct: Fri 9/30, Sat 10/1
  • Nov: Fri 4th, Sat 5th
