All sessions will be at the UNH Observatory and will extend from either 8-10 pm (September through March) or 9-11 pm (April through August)

These observing sessions are FREE and open to the public (which includes UNH students). However, be advised that we are unable to control the weather at the moment. So if you hear thunder or see snow falling in Durham, there's a good chance there's not going to be a session that night. 

These events are great for children, especially first graders and older. Special arrangements can be made for groups to have private viewing sessions at no charge. If you have an interested group of 8 or more, please contact us at unh.observer@unh.edu!
