Keep South Shore Safe

Masks are required on public transportation, and in LaPorte Lake Counties as well as on national park and state government properties, both inside buildings and in outdoor spaces where you cannot socially distance. Most businesses still require masks and we suggest calling ahead or checking online for details regarding each business’s policy.

Free Public Observing - Conway Public Observatory

This event has already passed. Please check our calendar for more fun events in the region!

April 13, 2019
Conway Observatory

191st and Chase
Lowell, IN 46356


The Calumet Astronomical Society’s observing events are open to the public, family friendly and free. 

Please park in the designated visitor parking area. Because observing is conducted in a “lights-out” environment, parents are requested to keep their children under close supervision. Do not use standard flashlights in the observing area. Exposure to white light, even briefly, will seriously impair night vision making observing difficult. Red-filtered flashlights can provide illumination without affecting night vision. You can make a red light by cutting off the end of a red balloon and putting over a standard flashlight.

Special Note: Observing with telescopes is contingent upon clear weather. Cloudy or inclement weather conditions may cause programs to be cancelled without advance notification. It is suggested that before heading to the event, you visit the CAS website, to confirm that the program is still scheduled.
