Debbieh Astronomical Observatory
 
History
If we delve deep into the early start of astronomy, we discover since 3000 years ago, this science was ironically based on either an ancient myth or illogical legends.
Aiming at spreading the true knowledge of astronomy and its latest discoveries, Beirut Arab University has established an astronomical observatory in 2001 at Debbieh Site.
Description
This observatory is well-equipped for the sole purpose of serving the needs of astronomy as a science. The most modern technology was applied in its construction. The most import feature, it has a mirror telescope with a diameter of 40 cm (Meada LX 200- 16 inches) such as, a telescope to observe the outer space and the solar system.

Activities
Depending on such a high-performing telescope, BAU has founded the Astronomy Club with the cooperation of the Lebanese Astronomy Association.
Several activities have been held by the astronomy club at BAU, such as the following:
1. Observing Mars in its closest position to earth, in August 2003, at the distance of 56 million km.
