Observatories

Oregon is fortunate to have quite a few observatories scattered throughout our state. What a better way to appreciate Oregon's dark skies then by taking a trip to one of these observatories. Maybe you'll see a far off galaxy or nebula. Make sure you check dates/times of operation beforehand.
