The Keeble Observatory is a teaching laboratory of the Physics Department of Randolph-Macon College in Ashland, Virginia. Its facilities are used by students in the College's astronomy courses and by advanced physics students. The Observatory is also used for student and faculty research projects. It is located on the College campus, which is approximately 15 miles north of Richmond, Virginia.

Public viewing sessions at the Keeble Observatory are normally held weekly (as weather conditions allow) during the academic year. We are open on Wednesday evenings, 7:30 - 10:00 pm - September through May, as weather and viewing conditions permit. The decision to open or not is made by student assistants just prior to the scheduled time. For details, call the Keeble Information line or contact Prof. George Spagna.
