A great place for star parties to observe stars, planets, comets, space and the universe.
Recommended by: Glen Sanner
I didn't go here yet, but I can tell you that these are really fun! I went to my first ‘Star Party' when I was 6 and I still like the neat things you can see - just like from the movies!
This newly constructed observatory is available for public viewing of the Cosmos and as a scientific resource for local students from grade school through grad school. To make a donation to assist in the construction call!
There will be a 24” telescope that can be viewed directly through or, in the adjacent classroom, students can view on video screens through the camera. These facilities will also be used for local programs to be aired on the campus local cable channel. Things you can see at the observatory include the craters of the moon, clouds and red spot of Jupiter, Saturn and its rings, galaxies, nebulae and other amazing things!
