Public Night Schedule


Thank you to all who attended the Observatory Lectures during the 50th anniversary of Man's first venture "Off Planet". 2020 is the anniversary of another historic event: the one hundreth anniversary of the start of construction of the Drake University Municipal Observatory. We hope to celebrate this with a party. The topics for the upcoming lecture series will concern the exploration of our solar system: The Planets, Asteroids and Comets, and other bodies that fly through. What will it take to land on them and how long would we last if we tried.


Spring series will be started on Friday, March 20, 2020.


Check here for the full schedule and lecture titles after the first of the year.
