PMO Opens 2018 May 25-26 of Memorial Day weekend for public tours

This was edited from the original May 2017 post. Please see the most recent May 2018 post for complete 2018 opening weekend information. Thank you for your interest in PMO.

It’s that time of year – public night sky tours at PMO begin Friday and Saturday, May 25-26, of Memorial Day weekend! Please note that there are no tours on Sunday and/or Monday, even when there is a Monday holiday. Always check the weather forecast and the PMO weather page before visiting; you should expect and prepare for nighttime temperatures in the 40s, even if it’s nice in town. Tours begin at about 9:00 p.m. and may last until midnight, although it’s not unusual for viewing to end earlier depending on conditions, so please arrive early, and check in at the greeting center next to the parking lot.

The PMO campground is a primitive Forest Service campground, and does not accept reservations. Although there’s plenty of space for smaller vehicles and tents, please do arrive early if you plan to camp.

We’re looking forward to another great season, and to seeing you at PMO!

  1. I am interested in stopping by just before or just after Memorial Day. Will the observatory be open on Thursday, May 24, 2018?
    And will it be open on Sunday May 27th?

    1. Ben,

      We are open only on Friday and Saturday nights to the Public beginning May 25-26.
      Our final Fri/Sat will be September 14-15.
