Today is Friday so that means Schoonover Observatory is open for Public Viewing at dark. If you have a telescope that you are unsure about using, then bring it and we will show you how to use it. If the clouds clear away will will be mainly looking at Jupiter and Saturn and a mixed bag of Nebulas, Clusters, Exploding Stars, and Galaxies. Plus there are still Perseid Meteors to be seen.
Donations are gladly accepted as we are all volunteers of our time, money, and resources. We are a Tax-exempt non-profit organization under tax code 501 (c) (3). Please help us support Schoonover Observstory. ...
