UGA observatory open house Dec. 2 to feature Jupiter

Athens, Ga. – The University of Georgia department of physics and astronomy in the Franklin College of Arts and Sciences will host its monthly observatory open house Dec. 2 at 7 p.m. on the fourth floor of the physics building.

There will be a quarter moon and Jupiter, the largest planet in the Solar System, will be visible if the sky is clear. Faculty and students from the physics and astronomy department will be on hand to point out sightings and answer visitors’ questions.

Free parking is available immediately to the north and west of the building, which is located at the corner of Cedar Street and Sanford Drive. In the event that the sky is not clear, a faculty member will deliver a lecture in room 202, the main lecture hall in the physics building.

Observatory open houses are held monthly during fall and spring semesters. For more information, see
