You may have looked at the sky and wondered about its beauty and complexity, but you never had the chance to enjoy its details and see its objects closely. In every observation we look at different object, ranging from planets and moon to stars and nebulae, in our beautiful and vast sky, using a telescope which enables us to see the mountains on the surface of the moon, the marvellous rings of Saturn and the surface of Jupiter. The sky will not be the same again. The observations are usually held in the main campus of Bilkent university and announced via the website as well as messages sent to Bilkent students. Please contact us for any questions, or suggestions.
