Public Telescope Nights at MSU

Bring children to enjoy looking through MSU’s club telescopes at the night sky constellations, the moon, planets, star clusters, double stars, nebulae, galaxies, and more!

8-9 PM

7:30 PM for small kids to see the Moon: 9/13, 9/20, 10/18, 11/15, 12/13

MSU telescopes cannot see through clouds!

Public Telescope Night will be cancelled if the weather is cloudy, cold (< 20 F), or very windy.    

(It is “clear” if you can see the moon or ten stars clearly.)
