Public Observation Nights

Each semester, Millikin hosts Public Observation Nights in the Requarth Observatory every Wednesday from 7:30-9:30 p.m. when there are clear skies and while the weather is warm (early September–early November in the fall and March to semester’s end in mid-May in the Spring).

    Millikin Astronomy

    We are committed to exploration, discovery, and examination, both of space and ourselves. The facilities and equipment used for astronomy allow just that. Students are given a vast number of possibilities through training in equipment and procedure, easy access to all equipment, classes designed to meet the needs of student's future plans, and independent studies.

    Millikin's Astronomy program does not end there. We have one of the largest publicly accessible telescopes in the area. In the fall and spring of the year, we host public viewing sessions, where all members of the community are welcome to stop by to do some stargazing with the assistance of qualified personnel. We also extend our reach outside of Millikin. Millikin's six 8" telescopes are portable, allowing us to go to dark sites for high-detail.
