While the main purpose of the observatory is to meet the educational needs of GMU’s students, it will also be a special place shared with our Washington D.C. community. Evenings “under the stars” each month will be offered to the region’s residents. During these special nights, attendees will enjoy stimulating presentations on the mysteries of outer space, given by our world class astronomer researchers and instructors. Science teachers for grades K-12 will be invited to bring their students for an astronomy class in the star-studded sky at George Mason University. Views from our observatory will also be shared by millions of people around the world via the internet.
