Public Observing Event

at the ACA Observatory


Impromptu Event! 
These "Impromptu" events are scheduled whenever conditions allow - generally on week-nights, but not always. Our Observatory Director decides when and
if weather conditions appear cooperative...no telling
when that will occur so watch for these events to be announced on the home page and follow the links provided there, or on the
2016 Yearly Calendar of Events

Ron, our Observatory Director, will let us know what his targets will be for these event.  There are always a huge range of objects available for us to see regardless of the time of year.  Then there are the occasional un-expected celestial events: novas, supernovas, near-earth asteroids, comets...for which we can't plan early in the year.  If any of these odd events happen to coincide with nice weather, we'll be here to show them to you.  Also, we have solar events during clear warm summer days.

Usually we'll have the Best Free Coffee in Akron brewing all observing session.

    The Jet Stream affects astronomical "seeing" (steadiness of the air)
    If we're in a gray area, seeing will not be as good as in a white area.
    If we're in a white area, the shorter the arrows, the better.
