Our most recent event:

330 E Lime Avenue
Crestone, CO

Also featuring:

This year's show-stopper is the Perseid Meteor Shower, which peaks this evening!!  Local astro-photographer, meteorologist, and resident astronomy enthusiast, Scott Stevens, will lead us in Experiencing the Night: 

What to Expect: The Perseid Meteor Shower, whose radiant rises with the constellation Perseus in the northeast,  climbing higher and higher as the night progresses.  We can hope for upwards of 60 - 100 bright meteors per hour as the night wears on.  


What to Bring: Lawn Chair and Blanket. This is a naked eye event, no optical aid is required. Though with the Milky Way passing overhead, a pair of binoculars will bring those dim fuzzies into view.  


What will be provided:  An 8” telescope will be set up to view some brighter objects like the bright globular cluster in Hercules, M13. M8 and M20 nebula in Sagittarius.  Then as the evening progresses, Saturn will rise in the east so we can see it’s moons and complex ring system.


Another smaller scope will be imaging so guests will have the opportunity to view and take home some astro-photos.
