Members ONLY Observing Night

7/9/2021 8:30 PM

Check website for cancellations due to weather.
If Friday is cancelled, we may try to reschedule for Saturday.

As CDC guidelines ease we are modifying our guidelines for our members observing nights.
We are still limiting attendance to our membership however you may bring family or a couple of guests with you. - No large groups please.

Masks will not be required when you are outside. However, when you are inside the classroom or viewing in our dome telescope, we request those who are not fully vaccinated to respect others health by wearing a mask. This mask guideline does not apply to younger children. We will leave that to their parent’s discretion.

If you decide to join other members at their telescope, we would still advise that you ask their permission. Our Rest Room and Classroom areas are Open.
Please exercise proper hand washing and other common health hygiene practices.

Dress for weather conditions. This is a rural setting so closed toed shoes are recommended. Temperatures in on our hilltop observing grounds are cooler than city forecasts. Jackets may be useful later in the evening.

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

To develop your observing skills, you may want to consider trying to earn one of the over 40 well designed observing certificates from the Astronomical League. Check out some of their   Observing Programs
