*There are three weeks given for an outdoor observing lab at Fuertes Observatory. This is weather-dependent. You must check with your TA as the lab time approaches. Wednesday afternoon labs will need to discuss this with their TA. On the third week, if the weather does not allow for outdoor observing, the lab will be indoors.
