Running Man Nebula


Saturn, Mars, and the Moon will be featured targets

If skies are clear, the Calvin Observatory will be open for star gazing on both Friday and Saturday night as well as for solar viewing on Saturday from 11 a.m.–noon.

Please see this map for finding the observatory. The east entrance of the Science Building (the entrance facing toward Johnny’s and Commons) is the only entrance which will be open. The stairs to the Observatory dome are just inside that entryway.

Photo: This color mosaic of the Running Man Nebula was created by Michaela Blain as an Astronomy 211 project in spring 2018. The original images were taken with Calvin’s telescope in Rehoboth, N.M. Learn more >
