Public Open Houses: Open Houses are free, public sessions for stargazing with telescopes that are usually, but not always, held at the West Lafayette Observatory (WLO) or Prairie Grass Observatory (PGO). The events normally include an astronomy-related presentation and constellation finding. In addition to observatory telescopes being made available, club members also share their telescopes with the public to look at various celestial objects of interest. Visitors may come and go as they please. The stargazing portion of the event is cancelled if the weather is mostly cloudy, raining, or very windy.
