Starting on February 4th, 2015, the Van Vleck Observatory at Wesleyan University will be opening its doors to the public every Wednesday night, rain or shine, for a series of space nights. Come talk to students and faculty about the latest space-related discoveries by scientists at Wesleyan and around the world. For the spring semester, the events will start at 8pm, beginning with a half-hour interactive presentation by students and/or faculty, followed by a chance for everyone to see the sky through Wesleyan’s telescopes (weather permitting). Presentations are intended to be accessible to visitors of all ages, although aimed primarily at high school level and above. A series of monthly kids’ nights is in the works as well. For more information and a schedule of events, check out the Astronomy department website at www.wesleyan.edu/astro/events or follow us on Twitter at @WesAstro .
