Observatories

Many observatories offer open nights to the public, allowing the chance to observe the night sky through larger and often historical telescopes. These nights are typically accompanied with tours and talks. If the observatory is particularly large you’ll be able to see the dormitories astronomers sleep in, the dining area, and the control room — often full of computers, monitors, personal laptops, tv screens, and an array of control panels.

But the best part of all is watching astronomers work to “get on sky.” One of the first steps is opening the dome, a beautiful noise that sounds like a freight train screeching to a stop. If it’s your first time visiting an observatory, this single noise signifies the beginning of a night you’ll never forget.

Throughout the night you’ll have the chance to view beautiful objects — whether they be the moons of Jupiter or two colliding galaxies thousands of lightyears away — with your very own eyes. If you have a chance to visit an observatory, by all means go!
