Bradley Observatory Open House Series

During the academic year the observatory welcomes guests to monthly open houses. They take place on Friday’s at 8pm (doors open at 7:30). Most of the open houses focus on a topic in physics or astronomy with lectures given by Agnes Scott faculty, students, alumni or local scientists. Some examples include professors speaking of their research (for example, radio observations of massive star forming regions and observations of comets) and alumni presenting on their scientific endeavors since graduation (for example, Off -plane Grating Rocket Experiment with x-ray technology and diversity in physics). During the fall and spring equinox, the open houses feature a concert given by a local musical group or solo musician. In the past we have been honored to host The Panorama Steel Band, Dr. Luther Enloe and the X-Modalities, to mention a few. A planetarium show typically follows the concert or lecture. The Delafield Planetarium has a 70 seat capacity. Shows typically include fun astronomy facts and a look at what the local sky will be that night. Cookies, coffee and tea are provided and the 1930’s Beck Telescope is open for viewing, weather permitting. Open houses are free, open to the public, educational and family friendly
