Did you know that the George Mason University Observatory in Research Hall offers Evenings Under the Stars, a free event series open to the general public and campus community? These events occur on alternate Monday evenings, with weather days on the off-weeks. Each evening features a 30-minute presentation by a prominent local scientist, who wants to share their current research in an accessible way. After a brief opportunity for questions, and if the weather allows, observatory staff will escort guests up to the roof for a look through the primary telescope.

Visit the website for more information. View the upcoming calendar of Evenings Under the Stars.
