Featuring "Eight Years of Roving Mars" a talk by Professor Wes Watters
About once a month during the academic year, Wellesley students and faculty open the Whitin Observatory to members of the public. Visitors will be able to take a tour, listen to talks, and (when clear) look through the 6-inch and 12-inch telescopes.
Public nights are free and will be held regardless of weather conditions. No reservations are required. Children must be accompanied and supervised by an adult.
