Commencement 2012: Stargazing

On Friday evening, May 18, several hundred people stopped by the McConnell Rooftop Observatory to see planets Venus, Saturn, and Mars, plus ancient star clusters and spiral galaxies. This time lapse video shows the view from the enclosure housing the 16-inch telescope. Stars are circling the celestial pole as viewers step in and out of the room.
