In addition to Public Observing Nights, the University of Iowa Physics and Astronomy Department Hawk-Eyes in Space outreach program holds other VAO tours and outreach events throughout the year, both openly advertised and closed for private groups. Observatory observing events are only possible nights March-October, but closed-dome tours are possible year-round and during the day. Check back here for future public outreach events; for inquires regarding other outreach and tours please contact Caroline Roberts at 319-467-1481.
