Upcoming Events for Dearborn Observatory

We are pleased to announce that beginning April 1, 2022, the Dearborn Observatory will again be open for public viewing every Friday night from 9:00pm to 11:00pm (8 to 10 pm during the winter months). The sessions are one hour long, free of charge, open to all, and are held "rain or shine." RESERVATIONS ARE REQUIRED. Due to limited space in the observatory, there is a maximum of 15 people per time slot. Parties of 10 or more require a $100.00 deposit which will be refunded the night of their reservation. Private viewing sessions on other evenings are also available for a fee. All visitors should note that the dome is neither heated nor air-conditioned so please dress appropriately. Unfortunately, the Dearborn is NOT ADA-accessible—several staircases must be climbed in order to reach the telescope. For more information, or to make a reservation, please call (847) 491-3650 or visit our webpage at https://physics.northwestern.edu/about/dearborn-observatory/
