Brief overview of Observatory events:
* Monthly Open Observatory Nights:
We are now offering an Open Observatory Night every month of the year... the first clear Sat. or Fri. night of each month.
(If not clear, we'll try for the next, Sat. or Fri., and the next, etc., as needed, until a clear night is obtained.)
Check "Announcements" for all the details!
* Special Open Observatory Nights:
These are held for special events, to view objects that may not be seen at the time of the next, upcoming monthly Open Observatory Night.
For example, some we've held in the last year are the Transit of Mercury, Lunar Eclipse, Perseid Meteor Shower, Lunar X, etc.
Check "Announcements" for all these details, as well!
