Description
View planets and stars in Albion College’s historical observatory on selected nights. The telescope is open to the campus community and the public for viewing celestial objects, weather permitting.

The Observatory has changed little in appearance since its opening in 1844. It is the only building on campus with Victorian architectural style. The domed observation room has the college’s primary telescope, which was handmade by Alvan Clark and Sons.
