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.
The Observatory will be closed from Dec. 5, 2013 - Jan. 7, 2014.
Public observing begins on Wed. Jan. 8 (daytime observing) and on Thurs Jan. 9 for evening observing.
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 3 only)
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.
