Science In The Community- (Unit #4 Galileo Galilei)

Ashcroft-Observatory-Entrance-SUUGalileo BONUS: Go visit the SUU Ashcroft observatory.

I have been here a couple times and it is awesome! In our unit on Galileo and astronomy, the students are learning all about the universe. This is the perfect spot to visit and observe the stars and planets.

The Ashcroft Observatory is located on the hilltop just south of the SUU farm on Westview Drive.

OPEN NIGHTS

In keeping with a long-standing tradition stemming from its opening in the early 1970s, the Observatory remains focused on community involvement and learning opportunities. The Ashcroft Observatory is open every Monday night to all those interested in learning about constellations or viewing distant parts of the galaxy. Interested parties should plan on arriving at the observatory just as the sun sets. As weather or other conditions might alter this schedule, before driving out, please call the number above to make sure someone is there.

This is a free opportunity, and has been of great use in the past to school groups, scout groups and families, but all are welcome and encouraged to enjoy the splendor in the skies. ~SUU

So go blast off to the observatory. The sky is the limit!
