View planets, galaxies, nebula, and other heavenly bodies at this modern observatory in the desert. Call the observatory first to check on weather conditions. Also, observatory staff members like to have an idea in advance of how many people will be arriving each night. As you approach the parking lot, dim your headlights because there are likely to be stargazers who have arrived before you. Many amateur astronomers who come here bring their own telescopes. If you do, observatory staff members will put you to work finding interesting sky objects for visitors to look at.
