Dome Access

Access to the UMBC Telescope can only be obtained
via two steep metal ladders.

Small children, people with mobility problems, and people afraid of
heights may not wish to visit the dome.

Such visitors are of course still very welcome, and can simply wait in the
main auditorium (room 401) for the subsequent astronomical presentation
and/or discussion led by members of the UMBC Faculty/Staff.

It is strongly recommended that visitors to the dome wear study shoes
(eg. walking/jogging, etc).
