Welcome!

Open Houses/Public Observing Nights:

The winter 2015 Public Observing schedule has been posted here, where you can find more information about the times and locations of our open houses. We will also generally have a meeting the Wednesday before an open house at 7 PM in 411 West Hall. For a complete schedule, please look at our calendar.

SAS and U of M Astronomy Swag:


Free Astronomy Tutoring:

SAS holds free tutoring sessions for 100 & 200-level astronomy students one night a week during the fall and winter terms. Unfortunately, tutoring is not offered during the Spring and Summer semesters. We can help you with your homework, labs, studying for exams, or just answer your general questions about astronomy. Please come with specific questions, as we can't do your entire homework set for you.

  • For answers to other questions and to schedule an alternate time for tutoring, please check the tutoring page. We will try to accommodate your requests, but please keep in mind that we are all busy students too. 
  • Tutoring for winter 2016 is on Wednesdays from 5:30 PM - 7 PM in 411 West Hall.

SAS Meetings:

  • Meetings are held on in room 411 West Hall (fourth floor over the arch) and are generally at 7:00pm on Thursdays before scheduled open houses. These meetings are generally administrative in nature, but anyone is welcome to come if they would like to help plan astronomy events on campus such as the Public Open Houses at the Angell Hall Observatory, 100-level astronomy tutoring, public inreaches with local elementary/middle schools, observing trips for events such as meteor showers, eclipses, star parties, etc.
