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.

Discover what our Sun is made of! We will look at burning hot gasses, build and decorate our own gas investigators, and play with creative puzzles!
Two shows, 4-5 and 5-6PM, suggested $5 donation for supplies, fun for the whole family!
The menu item "Steve's Pictures" is now populated.
|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.
