Austin Peay State University’s Department of Physics, Engineering and Astronomy gave children and adult astronomy enthusiasts a chance to observe Saturn, Jupiter, star clusters and nebulae at the university’s observatory on Saturday, Sept. 17. About 50 people attended the event, and many got the chance to look through the university's 20-inch Ritchey-Chretien telescope, which has the same optical design as NASA’s Hubble Telescope.
