Thank you for supporting the observatory! Please join us for an informal open house. Come for a tour, meet docents,  and check out our telescopes! 

Drive past the Sugarloaf Ridge park entry kiosk and park in the lot by the white barn.

Do dress warmly; telescope rooms are open to the night air and it gets cold.

Red lights only at the observatory to protect night vision; bring a red flashlight if you have one — or we'll give you some red cellophane to cover your white flashlight.

While this event is free to members and docents and their families, please sign up here so we know how many people to expect. Thank you!

If there are additional questions, please email Thank you, and we look forward to seeing you at future events.
