Open House at the Grand Mesa Observatory

  • Grand Mesa Observatory 7475 Purdy Mesa Road Whitewater, CO, 81527 United States (map)

Cold winter weather doesn't have us down up here at Grand Mesa Observatory. We have many, many requests for tours of the observatory. Thus we have decided to hold open house observatory tours once a month starting in January. On the third Saturday of every month the public is welcome to join us for a tour of Grand Mesa Observatory and to hear about the amazing astrophotography that takes place right here in Western Colorado! Questions will be welcome, and we will also talk about the astronomy-based educational and outreach efforts that Grand Mesa Observatory does for local schools and other organizations.

Please wear warm clothes. The room that houses our telescopes has to be kept at the same temperature as the outside air.
