Naylor Observatory Public Observing - Sunday September 22nd
We will be hosting a public observing open house on Sunday, September 22nd. There is no cost to attend, but we do appreciate donations. This event is weather dependent and will only occur if the sky is clear enough to observe. If the weather is questionable, call us at (717) 938‐6041 to make sure we are open for the evening. See link above for details.
