Next Planetarium Show / Stargazing Night:

Cosmic Dust Bunnies

at Ritchie Observatory is Saturday July 8, 8:30 pm.


Inspired by cleaning up his daughter's dorm room, Astronomer Steve Ruhl will talk about cosmic dust and its roll in forming new stars and planets.

Afterwards, we will observe clouds and/or rain. On the off-chance the sky is clear, astronomers will be on hand with telescopes. Free to members, $2.00 donation suggested for nonmembers, $5.00 for families.

    Deck for the Richie
    This Saturday (2/7/2015) Malcolm, Steve, Nels (l to r) & Marty were busy, knee deep in sawdust, working on the deck platform for the Richie. Once completed, the new deck will provide a single surface for observing at the telescope. A ladder will be needed but it will be much smaller and not tied to the dome. The End Result.
    The Ritchie is now a much more accessible telescope.
