We reserve Observatory nights nearest the New Moon to our CURRENT MEMBERS ONLY. This allows them to work on their various observing projects and help each other with their goals. The gates will open at 4:30 PM - - SUNSET is at 5:07 PM.

The Winter sky has a spectacular display of bright stars and deep space treasures. To enjoy our winter skies be sure to dress in warm layers. Hat and gloves give welcome relief from the cold. A thermos of warm drinks and a snack help get through the night. Our classroom is available for brief warming periods.

In Order to keep all present as safe as possible in this ongoing health crisis, please observe Social Distancing when not with your group. If you are NOT FULLY VACCINATED for COVID it is advisable to WEAR a MASK when near people other than your group. Please keep minor family members within your observing area with a supervising adult

Be sure to review the map directions carefully.
When arriving or departing be aware of people on the field and telescopes set up
