The Observatory of Bridgewater State University is a Massachusetts astronomical observatory, just 35 miles (57 km) south of Boston, Massachusetts. Home to a Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope as its main research instrument in addition to more than a dozen other telescopes, the observatory is dedicated to educating and sparking an interest in science, particularly astronomy, in the regional community by hosting public viewing nights, educational presentations, and K-12 workshops. The observatory staff will show visitors constellations, planets, stars, nebulae, galaxies and star clusters, and will be happy to answer any questions about astronomy. Public access hours vary, depending on that night’s active events. For more information, please visit online or call Bridgewater State University at 508-531-1000.
