Summer 2013 Public Nights
Check out our new Facebook page!
The Blue Mountain Observatory is closed for the winter. THANK YOU to the Montana DNRC, US Forest Service, BLM, the National Guard, the Fire Fighters and many others too numerous to mention for working to save homes and other buildings such as our observatory from the Lolo fire.
Thank you also to the Faculty, staff, students and other volunteers who gave up their Friday nights to help with these events. We are looking forward to the first open house next spring as soon as enough snow melts. Next Spring and Summer we will have good views of Mars and Saturn. If we are able to get up there soon enough in the spring we may also get some viewing of Jupiter.
