TJO Evening Public Talks Reservations

Individual Reservations

Reservations are strongly recommended for the talks as the TJO classroom holds only 45 people. All visitors are welcome to come and tour the observatory and view the night sky if clear; reservations are not needed for this part of the evening. The Seattle Astronomical Society members will be on hand in the dome to answer questions.

We are currently taking reservations through email only. Please email Dr. Ana Larson, Observatory Director, at anamunn -at- uw.edu (substitute @ for -at-) and let her know which date you want to attend and how many people will be joining you.


The University of Washington has lots of information on parking on campus for school and other bus transportation. Please visit the UW Parking Services web site for complete instructions and contact/permit information. If you are coming by car or car pool and it is earlier than 9 pm, then you will need to check in with the gate keepers at the north entrance (Gate 2) to the U of W campus for a permit and directions.
