Observatory

In 1997 I received a grant from the National Science Foundation to build an astronomical observatory for Ithaca College. The design and construction of this observatory was probably the most exciting time I've had at IC. First light at the observatory was in September, 1998. Since then it has been used for research by physics faculty and students, and has been opened to the public for sky viewing on Open House nights.

The current Open House schedule can be found here.
