The Open Houses at the Leslie Science Center are an opportunity for the general public to look through telescopes and view a variety of astronomical objects. These open houses are hosted by the University Lowbrow Astronomers. Members of the club bring their own telescopes and visitors are also encouraged to bring their own telescopes and setup before its dark. Visitors are also encouraged to bring their own binoculars.
There are several open houses at the Leslie Science Center each year. Open houses begin at sunset. Go here for a schedule. If conditions are unusually cold or if it is cloudy, the open house may be canceled. If in doubt, call (734) 975-3248 after 4 PM the day of the event to determine the status. Closing time is season dependent: 11:00 PM in winter, later for the rest of the year.
