      Star Party at Landolt Astronomical Observatory

      Public Viewing at the Landolt Astronomical Observatory on the roof of Nicholson Hall

      Once a month, on the Saturday (or sometimes Sunday) nearest the First Quarter Moon, with a "rain date" on the next day (Sunday) at the same time of day as Saturday. If the weather is mostly cloudy, there will not be any observing, as there will not be any celestial body to see.

      Admission is free and you need not bring anything. The observatory was built in the late 1930's and is not handicapped accessible.

      The Landolt Astronomical Observatory is located on the LSU campus on the roof of Nicholson Hall on Tower Dr. immediately west of the LSU Student Union (across Tower Dr.). Convenient parking is located in the lot immediately south of Nicholson Hall (this lot is between Nicholson Hall and Howe-Russell Geoscience Complex). Parking in the lot is free and open after business hours and on weekends. Entry to the building should be by the door in the middle of the south side of Nicholson Hall. People will then be directed to climb the stairs up to the roof.
