Community members can explore planets, nebulas, star clusters and distant galaxies this summer during stargazing nights at UM’s Blue Mountain Observatory.
The observatory sits on Blue Mountain at an elevation of 6,300 feet. Astronomers from UM and the Western Montana Astronomical Association will guide visitors in viewing the night sky through telescopes, point out constellations, show attendees how to find interesting celestial objects with the naked eye or a pair of binoculars, and discuss recent astronomical discoveries.
Observing begins about an hour after sunset. Participants should wear warm clothes for cool evenings and bring a flashlight for the walk from the parking area to the observatory. Smoking and alcohol are strictly prohibited at all events.
Limited attendance nights for those who would like a more personal experience occur June 29, July 27, Aug. 24, Aug. 31 and Sept. 21. Tickets for these nights cost $20 per person, with attendance limited to 25 people or fewer.
More information is available on the observatory website with detailed directions and a useful map.
