The public is welcome to the McKim Observatory Open Houses. The Clark 9.53 inch refractor will be open for viewing the planets, moon, star clusters, nebulae and galaxies. The featured objects will depend on the date and sky conditions. In good sky conditions we will also set up Celestron telescopes on the lawn around the observatory. In the event of total cloud cover the open house will be canceled. Please note that while McKim is well equipped for observing the sky, it lacks the modern convenience of a rest room. Also note that evening weather tends to be chilly, and you will enjoy your visit to McKim more if you dress warmly.
