Frequently Asked Questions

Do you hold lectures open to the public?

Lectures scheduled at the Observatory.

Do you record earthquakes from all over the world or just from New England?

We have instruments in the World-Wide Standardized Seismograph Network (WWSSN) and in the New England Seismic Network (NESN), so we do record earthquakes from all over the earth.

Do you have public viewing times on your telescopes?

No, we are a geophysical observatory, not an astronomical observatory. There aren't any telescopes here.
