CofC Dept of Physics and Astronomy Open House

The CofC Department of Physics and Astronomy will host an Public Open House on Friday, October 16th, from 7:30 – 9:00 pm. Public Open Houses are generally held the THIRD FRIDAY of each month during the academic year. 

Weather permitting, the observatory and observing deck will be open to the public. We will also have several fun activities for all ages in rooms on the first floor of the science building, and our inflatable planetarium will be set up in physicians auditorium. Enter the Rita Liddy Hollings Science Center (58 Coming Street, downtown Charleston) via the Coming Street entrance and follow signs to the roof.

If you plan to bring a large group (10 or more), or if you will need special accommodations, please contact Chris True at or 843-953-2031 ahead of time.

Open-toed shoes are not permitted on the observing deck. Please dress warmly (it can be several degrees cooler and much windier on the roof than at ground level).

Questions? Contact Dr. James Neff at or 843-953-5325.
