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. 

The Whitin Observatory is located on the campus of Wellesley College. Please refer to these travel directions and area maps.
