Directions to our Lectures and Stargazing Events

Our lectures are held in the Cahill Astronomy and Astrophysics building in the south of Caltech's campus. Our stargazing sessions are set up on the North Athletic Fields adjacent to Cahill. Please see our map below for detailed directions or use Caltech's own map for more information. There will be signs out and volunteers around to help you find your way.

Parking for Lectures and Stargazing Events

Outside of business hours, it is free to park in any of the Caltech parking garages or lots. The closest parking lot to our events is the underground lot just South of Cahill seen as a yellow car in the map below. During weekday business hours, you must pay for a visitor pass to park in Caltech lots. Alternatively, no permit is required to park on Wilson Ave at any hour if you are able to find a spot.

Our Astronomy on Tap nights are held at Der Wolfskopf Pub in Old Town Pasadena. Der Wolfskopf is located at 72 N Fair Oaks Ave, Pasadena, CA, just two blocks north of Colorado Ave. See directions below. You can find metered street parking on the streets near Der Wolfskopf, or pay to park in one of the parking structures, the closest of which is One Colorado.
