Guest and Members Night - Guest Please RSVP

You are invited to join us Saturday October 15th for our Members and Guests observing night at our observatory. Weather permitting, we will have several telescopes set up for you to enjoy views of the autumn sky. The planets Saturn and Jupiter will both be well placed for viewing. Check the website before you head out for weather cancellations.

Our observing ground gates will open at 6:15 PM. Guests are asked to park on the lot at the large building next to our observing field. Due to our rural location, it is recommended you wear socks and closed toe shoes. A jacket may be desirable as rural areas are cooler. Please use insect repellant at your cars and not near the telescopes.

We are you to RSVP ( preferably by Friday if possible ) by using our CONTACT option on the TOP of our website bar. This will help us be better prepared to help you. Small family or friends’ groups are welcome, but we cannot accommodate large groups at this time. Children MUST be supervised. Quiet activities for restless kids are beneficial.

Covid & Flu are still of some concern - So we are asking you choose a future date if you or your family are ill. When approaching a telescope ask the owner if they are willing to share the views.
