For Yale Departments

There are no known cases of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) at Yale University, but as a precaution, the Leitner Family Observatory and Planetarium has cancelled all school groups and other events at LFOP through April 5, 2020. As we approach April 5, we will reassess the situation and communicate next steps. We will provide information sufficiently in advance of that date to allow for planning.

Leitner Family Observatory & Planetarium is available to rent by Yale University Departments only, at the rate of $175/hr. Yale events must fit around our ongoing educational and outreach activities.

To obtain details about renting the observatory and planetarium for a Yale department event, please complete our reservation request.

*Please note - LFOP is not available during summer months, as it is used for Yale Summer Program in Astrophysics (YSPA)
