    • Hi Francis,

      Sa ngayon wala pa ulit regular schedule ng telescope viewing ang UP AstroSoc, but there will be one scheduled on November 28. Will keep you posted.

      By the way, you can drop by the PAGASA Observatory in UP Diliman and visit their large telescope (the largest one in the Philippines). Sometimes, they do allow groups to do scope-viewing. I guess you just have to send them a letter to ask permission.

      Cheers!
