The Rhodes Physics Department is proud to host monthly open houses for students, faculty, and the general public. Specific objects visible vary according to the season, but some favorites are the Moon, Saturn, Jupiter, the Orion Nebula, the Perseus Double Cluster, and the Andromeda Galaxy. Several telescopes and observatory docents will be available to show these, and other, astronomical objects. Open houses are free and all are welcome to attend.
