Last astronomy open house of year focuses on Saturn


April 25, 2011

Get a close look at Saturn – the planet, not the car – during the last Astronomy Open House of the year at Arizona State University April 29.

The telescopes will be set up from 8 to 10 p.m. on the roof of the Bateman Physical Sciences H-Wing for viewing Saturn and its amazing rings. A planetarium show that same evening also will explore the mysterious gas planet.

Also that evening, visitors to the free event can learn about ASU’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera, add to their rock collection at the GeoClub sale, and see and touch a meteorite.

To get to the open house, go to the main entrance to the Bateman H-wing. Free parking is available after 7 p.m. in the Tyler Street Parking Garage. From the parking garage go west along the University Drive sidewalk (toward campus) until you see signs leading you to the entrance.

The open house is partially supported by the GEO Club and ASU Undergraduate Student Government.
