Big Bear Solar Observatory

Alumni are invited to visit Big Bear Solar Observatory!

 The last time NJIT’s Big Bear Solar Observatory was open to Alumni was on Saturday, October 3, 2009 for the dedication of the world’s largest solar telescope.  It was a special day and those who attended had a great time – learning, networking and enjoying the beautiful Big Bear setting.

Dr. Phil Goode, Distinguished Professor at NJIT and director of both BBSO and the Center for Solar-Terrestrial Research has offered to open his Solar Observatory again for Alumni to tour!

Don’t miss this chance to enjoy a tour, solar observations and lunch on Saturday, October 15, 2011 from 10:00 am - 2:30 pm.

NJIT Provost, Dr. Ian Gatley will be on hand to meet you and share his plans for the students and school.

*On-line registration is closed for this event.

There is a registration fee of $20 per person to defray the cost of lunch.
