TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — From 9:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. Tuesday evening people in the area will have the opportunity to explore the summer sky at Rose-Hulman.
Rose-Hulman is hosting an open house of their Oakley Observatory and attendees can expect to have access to the observatory’s telescopes that will allow guests to view clusters, nebulas, and galaxies.
Elizabeth Melton is the assistant professor, for the Department of Physics and Optical Engineering, for Oakley Observatories at Rose-Hulman.
Melton noted more about the observatory’s capabilities when it comes to viewing the stars.
“You’ll actually be able to look in the back of these telescopes and these big guys over here are better for those kind of faint fuzzies that are harder to see. We will be seeing some globular clusters some open clusters and some nebula here,” Melton said.
This event is free and open to the public.
