Nicholas R. Anderson Observatory

The Anderson Observatory is a Virginia Tech owned facility that is open to the public during weekly Open Houses. Open Houses are held on  Friday evenings during the Fall and Spring semesters, weather permitting. Please go to the Events page to check the status of the next Open House. Members carpool to the observatory from campus, so this is a good opportunity for members who do not own a car.
