Celestial wonders on view at night sky event

The Grove City College Department of Physics is hosting a large- and small-scale night sky viewing event from 9 to 11 p.m. Friday, April 26 in room 051 of STEM Hall on campus.

Images of celestial objects will be livestreamed via the 0.5-m telescope located at the College’s Observatory in Edinboro, Pa. An astronomer will explain and guide viewers throughout the evening.

Participants will also have an opportunity to use the department’s scanning electron microscope (SEM) to explore nanoscale features of a variety of objects. 

In case of cloudy or inclement weather, the live streaming from the observatory will not be available but the astronomer will still be present to show images and field questions. The SEM viewing will be available.
