Telescopes at UT's Painter and Robert Lee Moore Halls

Take a date or the kids to look through the 16-inch and 9-inch telescopes that UT astronomy students use for their studies of the night sky. On Wednesday nights when school is in session, brainy UT staff lead free star parties on the roof of Robert Lee Moore Hall. On Friday and Saturday nights, Painter Hall is the place to be: Here, the Department of Astronomy hosts free viewing for all of us with our heads in the stars.
