Stars and nebulas visible during observatory show Nov. 5

A double star, planetary nebula and a star cluster were visible through Concordia's Osten Observatory Nov. 5, during an open house.

Led by professor of physics Robert Hermann, guests to the observatory saw a double star, a star cluster made up of thousands of stars and a planetary nebula formed from the gases released by a dying star.

The observatory is located at the northeast corner of campus along East Hillcrest Drive.

Additional open houses will be held in the spring.
