Melton Memorial Observatory was completed in 1928 and is one of the most architecturally distinct buildings on campus. On clear Monday nights, it is open to the public and the telescopes may be used free of charge or you can watch a live stream online.
However, this is not the location of the first telescope or observatory owned and run by USC. The first observatory on campus was actually constructed on the roof of one of the university’s oldest buildings.
