Thanks for a great season!
I had intended to post this sooner, but better late than never! Thanks to all the visitors (well over 1,000) who helped to make the 2016 summer tour season another great season at PMO. We look forward to seeing many of you again in 2017, beginning Memorial Day weekend (Friday-Saturday, May 26-27, 2017). For now, I’ll leave you with a photo of the famous Ring Nebula (M57), taken in September through PMO’s 24-inch telescope.
Also, if you’re planning for the August 21, 2017 total solar eclipse over Oregon, keep in mind that PMO is not in the path of totality, so there may not be any public activity at PMO on that day. Alternatives include the Oregon Star Party site east of Prineville, and the Oregon Solar Fest (http://www.oregonsolarfest.com/) near Madras.
