Space Science at UTK

Telescope Observing from "The Roof"

Obeserving is temporarily on hold due to construction on "the roof". We will resume asap, hopefully in time for July 7, but we'll have to wait and see. Check back in a couple of weeks.

We observe from the roof of the Alvin H. Nielsen Physics and Astronomy Building on the first and third Fridays of every month, weather permitting. We are located on the “The Hill” off Cumberland Ave. between 13th St. and Phillip Fulmer Way. Parking is available in the Vol Hall Parking Garage on White Ave.

Some Handicapped Parking is available In front of the Physics and Astronomy Building.

Observing begins at X:XX PM

Don't forget to check the weather!

Are the skies going to be clear tonight??? Be sure to select the correct approximate time.


Here is a great site that will help you decide when will be a good time to observe the night sky
