Guitars Under the Stars, our annual event co-hosted with the Drake University Department of Physics and Astronomy, is a classical guitar concert featuring members of the Heart of Iowa Classical Guitar Society (HICGS) followed by a tour of the observatory and star-gazing using the historic refractor telescope housed in the Observatory. The tour will be conducted by Dr. Charles Nelson, Professor of Astronomy. Classical and contemporary works for classical guitar will be performed.
Please, note that the telescope dome is kept at ambient temperature and it might be cold. The conference room where the concert will be held is heated.
The event is free and open to the public.
