Arcadia Hosts Astronomy Night, Nov. 11 and 16
Glenside, Pa.—Nov. 3, 2010—Arcadia University will host two astronomy nights on Thursday, Nov. 11 and Tuesday, Nov. 16 from 7:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. in Boyer Hall. Both events are free and open to the public. Children are welcome but must be supervised at the telescopes. Arcadia University is located at 450 S. Easton Road, Glenside, Pa.
Arcadia students will open the observatory on the roof of Boyer Hall (weather permitting) and will have telescopes pointed at the Moon or Jupiter and be ready to tell visitors a little about what they are observing. The students also have prepared some fun activities for visitors (such as launching rockets and making glow-in-the-dark constellations) on the second and third floors of Boyer Hall. Volunteers from the Education Department also will be on hand to help visitors and run activities. Free star maps will be available to all visitors.
