Closed Thursday, April 7 and Friday, April 8.

The Dr. Ralph L. Buice Jr. Observatory at Fernbank Science Center houses a 0.9 meter (36-inch) Cassegrain reflector beneath a 10 meter (30 ft.) dome. This is the largest telescope in the southeastern United States and one of the largest instruments ever dedicated to education and public viewing. Free public observations are offered every Thursday and Friday evening from 9 p.m. (or dark) until 10:30 p.m., weather permitting. An astronomer will be available to position the telescope and answer questions.

Please call ahead for observatory viewing, since cloudy skies could cancel the program. 678-874-7102
