EIU Observatory

It’s the last Friday of the month so it’s time for the open house at the observatory. It starts at 8:00PM tonight, rain or shine! If the weather cooperates we will be viewing the Ring Nebula through the main 16″ telescope under the dome. The Ring Nebula is one of the most famous planetary nebula, the gaseous remains of a red giant star.

There will also be smaller telescopes and binoculars to view the heavens with.  If this is your first time to visit you can find us on this map.  Park in the university  lot next to the Methodist Church, or if you need closer parking because of movement restrictions drive up the gravel road leading to the observatory.  See you there!
