Visit Website right arrow



Sherzer Observatory is an astronomical observatory located on the Eastern Michigan University campus. The observatory is open on clear Tuesday evenings from September through April (academic year), and at select times during spring/summer terms (May through August). It is operated by Physics & Astronomy staff and student volunteers from the EMU Astronomy Club. They are also scheduled to open on clear Monday evenings after 7:30 p.m. (and perhaps occasional Thursday evenings later in the term) for the Winter 2017 term for lab observations. A quick check of the observatory phone may verify if they are observing on a particular evening. The observatory observes all university holidays and closures.
