The Missouri S&T Observatory will open its doors at 9 p.m. Tuesday, March 21, for viewing the Beehive Cluster, one of the brightest and nearest open star clusters in the sky. It is in the constellation Cancer, observed as early as the first century by Claudius Ptolemy.
The observatory is located at 1550 N. Bishop Ave., next to S&T’s Stonehenge replica, north of McNutt Hall and west of St. Patrick’s Lane. The sky must be clear for observing.
