Stars and nebulas visible during observatory show Nov. 5
A double star, planetary nebula and a star cluster will be visible through Concordia's Osten Observatory Nov. 5, during an open house from 8 to 9:30 p.m.
Led by professor of physics Robert Hermann, guests to the observatory will see 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.
Guests may come and go as desired during the open house as no formal program will take place. The viewing cycle takes 15-30 minutes, but visitors may stay as long as they like.
If weather obscures the sky at the starting time, the viewing will be cancelled. The observatory is located at the northeast corner of campus along East Hillcrest Drive.
Additional open houses will be held in the spring.
