Dearborn Observatory Welcomes 1,500 During Architecture Festival

On October 15 & 16, the Dearborn Observatory hosted 1,500 visitors as part of the Chicago Architecture Foundation’s Open House Chicago (OHC) event. Both days had larger attendance than last year’s event: 800 people visited the Dearborn on Saturday and 700 people came on Sunday this year. Two other sites on Northwestern’s Evanston campus were featured, among over two hundred sites total in the greater Chicago area.

Huge thanks to astronomers Mike Smutko, Cody Dirks, Moriah Lavey, Alex Gurvich, and Kyle Kremer for dedicating some of their weekend to chat with 1,500 visitors!
