SBU ORION Astronomy Club
The SBU ORION Astronomy Club aims to encourage the inquiry of our natural world through group study of astronomical phenomena. The club hosts numerous activities, including viewings of the night sky at the university's observatory.
To keep up with the club's activities, follow either of our Facebook pages:
The club's name, ORION, is short for Organization of Recreational Inquirers Of the Natural world, as well as the name of one of the best-known constellations in the night sky.
The university observatory is located near the McGraw-Jennings baseball field and the Maintenance/Central Receiving Building.
The observatory houses three reflector telescopes: an 11-inch Schmidt-Cassegrain that is permanently mounted under the dome, and two 8-inch Schmidt-Cassegrains that can be mounted outside on the deck.
