Public stargazing at Lund Observatory

What it is about:
Are you interested in seeing the beauty of our Universe with
your own eyes? Would you like to have a closer look at another
galaxy, a star cluster or the remnant of a dying star? You may
join us for stargazing! This is an offer privately organized by
a few telescope enthusiasts of the astronomy department. We
invite you to meet us and come with us up to the observational
terrace of the department building (not the water tower).
During this event we will use a small telescope to look at a
few bright objects and to discover our surroundings. One of our
astronomers will guide you on your tour through the night sky.

All events are free of charge. We meet at the main entrance
(Sölvegatan 27) of the Astronomy building at the
starting time. The observation event takes place only
if the weather is good and if the skies are clear. As a rule of
thumb, if you cannot see the blue sky during daytime or a few
bright stars at dusk we will not be able to observe. We typically
update this web page a few hours before events according to
the latest forecast. If you are in doubt about the weather
please check here before heading to the Observatory.
