it is open to the public on Saturday nights. The astronomy professor and club members love sharing the telescopes and talking about the cosmos. Their enthusiasm and vast knowledge is infectious.

This place is great for a small town observatory. There's a very active star-gazing community in Carson City and the college hosts a regular weekly speaker at the observatory. The lectures are interactive and very interesting and, usually, pertinent to some current event. Kudos!
