Tentative: Sabbatical Replacement candidate to meet with Physics Majors 3:30 - 4:00 Rm. 259??

Public Viewing night, Friday, March 26th from 9:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m.

You are invited to join the Ithaca College Department of Physics for a Public Viewing of the night sky at the Clinton B. Ford Observatory on Friday, March 26th from 9:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m.

Attending a Public Night
To attend a public night, just show up at the vehicle 'turn around' in front of the entrances of Smiddy Hall and CHS (F lot side).  A shuttle van will make regular runs to convey people up to the observatory and back down. There is no parking available at the observatory and the access road is NOT lighted, so please do not walk up.

Bad Weather Plan
The "go/no-go" decision for any public night will be made at 3:30 p.m. on the scheduled date. Our web page and the recorded message at the observatory will be updated shortly thereafter to reflect the decision for that evening. If you check our site or call the observatory at 274-3012 after about 4:00 p.m. (to give us time to post an update) you will get the final decision for that evening.
