Astronomy Day Huge Success

Posted by Observatory

On October 12, 2013 the Wheaton College Observatory opened its doors for the public for the occasion of the international Astronomy Day. Several telescopes were set up and pointed the moon, the famous Andromeda Galaxy and the colorful binary star Albireo. The new 24-inch telescope in the dome was open for viewing as well. With about 450 visitors, this was one of busiest events ever!
