Western Connecticut State University’s Westside observatory will host free, public planetarium shows and viewing parties on multiple Saturday evenings this spring. The observatory is on the university’s Westside campus, located at 43 Lake Avenue Ext. in Danbury, between the Westside Campus Center and Pinney Hall on top of a small hill. The entrance road faces the front of Pinney Hall.
Planetarium shows will run for an hour. The times will vary with the sunset. After the show, the public is invited to view the night sky through individual telescopes or take turns with the large 20-inch telescope. Telescope viewing will run for two hours, weather permitting.
