UR Observatory enters the 21st century

with a Facebook page and a Twitter feed.

We’ll be posting announcements of public observing nights in both places, so if you want to know when things are going on at the telescope, follow us on Twitter and/or sign up to get notifications on Facebook. (If I’m not mistaken, to do the latter you want to go to the Facebook page and check the “Get Notifications” line under the Like button.)

Tell your friends!

  1. No, it’s used only for education / public outreach.

    It’s a pretty new 14″ Schmidt-Cassegrain from Celestron, which would be good enough to do some sorts of science, but (a) it’s kind of a lousy site and (b) we haven’t had any observational astronomers on the faculty. We just hired a new faculty member, Jack Singal, who does some optical observing, but all extragalactic stuff, which wouldn’t work with this telescope.
