We Come in Peace

Welcome Earthlings, to the University of Utah’s official SEDS page! Here you can keep up to date on the various activities we plan throughout the year. We’d also like to keep you up to date on many of the awesome events happening with space exploration.

To start, do you like stars? How about parties? If you are around the Salt Lake City, Utah area and you want to do some star gazing join members of SEDS along with seasoned astronomers and space enthusiasts alike at the South Physics Observatory here at the U! Star parties are hosted at the South Physics Observatory on Wednesday evenings (weather permitting). The time to start is sunset, which changes depending on the time of year. To verify the status of a star party call 58-SPACE (587-7223) after 8:00pm on Wednesdays. Other questions about the observatory can be sent to observatory@physics.utah.edu. Hope to see you there!
