[email protected] is a series of astronomical observation sessions led by astronomer and planetary science lecturer Amanda Bosh. Members of the MIT community are encouraged to come and observe the sky above and learn about space and what there is to see on that particular day or night. Everyone is welcome to participate by looking through one of the telescopes and having a conversation with peers and astronomy enthusiasts alike up on the roof of building 37, on MIT’s campus in Cambridge, MA.
