In 2005, the physics department began to revive the use of this lab and acquired two new telescopes (Celestron's Nexstar 130GT and Firstscope 114C) aside from the 3 other previously purchased telescopes. Silliman University is one of the very few school's in the Philippines that actually owns its own telescopes. The JPPS have, since then, been actively using this facility for stargazing events. Also for the first time, undergraduate thesis are being developed in the astronomy and meteorology fields.
