As CSU-Pueblo continues a process of repair
on the observatory the Southern Colorado
Astronomical Society continues the tradition of
hosting a Public Night at the facility.  While we
cannot offer the view from a 20-inch telescope,
we can offer a view that nearly rivals that of the
large telescope; a view that will help you
Discover Your Inner Astronomer.

Our summer series of Public Night under the
Observatory continues Friday August 17th from
8pm until 10pm and everyone is invited.  Join
us at the base of Observatory Hill as members
of the Southern Colorado Astronomical Society
set up state of the art high power telescopes.  
Witness breath taking views of distant stellar
nurseries where stars are being created.  See
the most ancient citizens of our Milky Way
Galaxy and Universe, Globular Clusters, as
they gleam from the halo of our galaxy.  Visit
the planets of our solar system where robotic
ambassadors from Earth now conduct
research. And if you are lucky watch a shooting
star burn across the sky or see a satellite catch
light from our local star and reflect it to our
eyes.  Stories from antiquity for all to enjoy,
NASA handouts to enhance your knowledge of
the night sky and more.  Help us keep a Pueblo
tradition alive and well while the observatory
undergoes repair.  Trust us, Your Inner
Astronomer will thank you.
