Public Nights for the Spring of 2014

Two Behlen Observatory public nights have been scheduled for the spring of 2014. Behlen Observatory will be open on public nights regardless of the weather and at least one presentation will be given. However, clouds and precipitation greatly will decrease our offerings. Visitors will be able to see the 30-inch telescope but will not be able to view astronomical objects through it when cloudy.
