Public Lecture at 7pm (Willie Miller Auditorium)

Observations from 8pm - 11pm (College of Arts and Sciences)

Astronomical Observatory Open House nights at ERAU's Daytona Beach campus! These free events allow the campus community and members of the general public of all ages to view the night sky through the Observatory's telescopes, ask questions, and learn about our universe. Weather permitting, celestial objects will be visible through a collection of telescopes from the roof-top observing deck and through our new 1-meter telescope from within the large dome.

There are typically several open house events during the fall and spring semesters hosted by ERAU's student Amateur Astronomy Club. Events are on selected Friday nights.

View the sky through many of the Observatory's telescopes and binoculars. We have step stools so kids can reach the eyepiece!

In addition to viewing the night sky through our telescopes, explore our astronomy posters and take a walking tour of the solar system. There is no fixed program for observations and no reservations are necessary. Just drop by to see the stars!

**1-meter Telescope Tickets**
Free tickets with tour times are distributed on the 2nd floor on a first come first served basis. Tickets are only available in person, and not distributed until 6:45pm the night of. Due to space limitations in the 1-meter dome there is a limit to how many people can observe through the 1-meter in a single night.

There are many other activities to explore: view a 3D poster gallery of images from Mars, interact with different types of telescopes and learn how they work, take a walking guided tour of the solar system, interact with our gravity-well simulator, see microscopic meteorites, see rockets built by students, perform physics and chemistry demonstrations with students, view informational astronomy posters, view our astrophotography gallery, and more! There is no fixed program for observations and no reservations are necessary.
