The college has announced that they'll host a free event on April 28 from 7:30 to 10 p.m. at the Olin Observatory in Olin Science Center.

“Attendants will gain knowledge of telescopes and the night sky, and will have access to people knowledgeable in the subject of astronomy who can answer their questions,” Leslie Brown, Connecticut College associate professor of physics and astronomy, said in the press release.
