This was a last minute adventure that was recommended to us by a person we met at the new pool...boy are we grateful for that person's advice to see this attraction in Sun River. For the $6 admission we were treated to a wonderful outdoor experience. The staff began the presentation (while we waited for darkness) with a brief sideshow that included answering questions about our planet and the universe. After the introduction we were able to walk around the observatory and look thtrough a variety of telescopes provided and manned by volunteers. On our tour we viewed Saturn, Mars, deep space star nurseries, Nebula and the edge of our galaxy. Our 5 year old grand-daughter was so enthralled with this experience she could not stop talking about the visit and wanted to call everyone and tell them what she had just seen. There is no better value or educational activity in Sun River...this is truly a "do not miss" opportunity to explore the stars. Do wear a light jacket, bring some bug repellant and prepare yourself for a WOW experience.
