If the sky is sufficiently clear, the Fox Park Observatory will open its doors for public observing. Observation nights will not be held on nights with more than 30% cloud cover. You may call the Observatory at (517) 645-6666 during public viewing hours to check sky conditions.
Public observation nights and solar viewing days are suitable for people of all ages. Program fee is $2/person or $5/family payable on site.
The Observatory is an open air observatory so please dress appropriately for the weather, bring mosquito protection, and wear sturdy footwear for the 200 yard walk to the observatory.
Local area astronomers will be on hand to answer questions about the night sky and solar viewing.
