The U of A Observatory is operated by the Department of Physics at the University of Alberta. We're located at the West end of the 5th floor of the CCIS Building. We provide free outreach activities for the public through our regular free observing hours as well as special visits for school groups and other education-oriented groups.
Lunar Eclipse on the Evening of April 14
The observatory will be closed during the lunar eclipse, but you can easily watch the eclipse of the Moon yourself at home. No telescope is required! The partial phase of the eclipse begins just before midnight (Mountain Daylight Time) on the evening of Monday April 14, and continues into the early hours of the morning of April 15.
Evening observing continues until April 17.
During the summer months the observatory will
be open occasionally in the evening for special events. Special summer events will be announced
on our Facebook and Twitter accounts.
Solar Observing: Wednesdays 11:30am - 12:30pm
January : Thursday evenings, 7 - 8pm
February: Thursday evenings, 7 - 8pm
March: Thursday evenings, 8 - 9pm
April: Thursday evenings, 9 - 10pm (April 17 is the last date)
School groups and other education-oriented groups can book a private visit. These visits are free of charge. Please contact us at least one month before your anticipated visit date since there is high demand for these visits and we have limited availability.
Teachers should note that the Sky Scan outreach program is designed to help bring real science activities to Grade 6 and 9 science classes.
