The University of Nebraska-Lincoln's Behlen Observatory will be open free to the public for viewing Friday night.

Provided the sky is clear, visitors will be able to see several celestial objects with the observatory's 30-inch telescope and with smaller telescopes set up outside. Objects include the moon, the planet Uranus, two kinds of star clusters and the Ring Nebula in Lyra.

A member of the observatory staff will present a program on comets as well.

The observatory is in the eastern Nebraska town of Mead. More information can be found on the observatory website, http://astro.unl.edu/observatory .
