The Warkoczewski "Warko" Observatory is located on the roof of Royall Hall at the University of Missouri – Kansas City campus and is open on clear Friday evenings from May through October starting near dusk for viewing of the moon, planets, bright deep sky objects such as star clusters and nebulae. The main telescope is a custom designed, 16” Newtonian reflector with a 14" Meade LX200GPS-AC Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope operated by members of the Astronomical Society of Kansas City on behalf of the university. Admission is free and its central location, just east of the Plaza, makes it very convenient for city residents. You may want to bring warm clothing for early spring and late fall nights, but come up and enjoy the surprise of just what astronomy is possible in the heart of Kansas City!
