Onan Observatory

Schedule of Public Events


Important note:  Always check the Society's phone message at 952-467-2426 for event updates and last minute, weather-related schedule changes and cancellations.


The Minnesota Astronomical Society (MAS) hosts public star-gazing nights at the Onan Observatory April through November.  These events are held "rain or shine" and are not canceled due to poor weather.  In the event of poor weather, slide presentations substitute for viewing through the telescope.  (See "Visiting the Observatory" in the "Visitor Information" section for more information.)

Access the "Printable Version" page for a "printer-friendly" version of the schedule (use your browser's "back" button to return here after printing).

(For information about MAS star parties, visit the 'Events' section of the main web site.)
