See Saturn From an ASU Rooftop This Friday

On Friday night, ASU will host its last Astronomy Open House of the year with views of Saturn through rooftop telescopes.

You know that means -- cool, free date night.

The telescopes will be set up from 8 to 10 p.m.on the Bateman Physical Sciences H-Wing on the Tempe Campus. The event will also screen an informational planetarium show, present the latest on ASU's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera, let guests purchase a gift from the GeoClub sale, and touch a meteorite.

Parking for the event is free after 7 p.m. in the Tyler Street garage. From there, go west along the University Drive sidewalk (toward campus) until you see signs for the Bateman H-wing.

For more info, see the ASU Astronomy Open House website.
