Come view the night sky at the Clinton B. Ford Observatory!

Public Viewing night, Friday, November 4th from 8:00p.m. to 10:00p.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,  November 4th  from 8:00p.m. to 10:00p.m.

To attend a Public Night
Just show up 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. Please note that there is NO parking available up at the observatory and that the access road is NOT lighted. For your own safety, please do not walk up.

Bad Weather Plan
The "go/no-go" decision for any public night will be made at 3:30 pm 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. So if you check our website or call the observatory at 607-274-3012 after 4:00 pm you will get the final decision for that evening.
