Hyde Observatory will open June 19!

The observatory will be open Saturday nights 6/19 and 6/26 from sunset (about 9:00 p.m.) to 11:00 p.m.. Only the observing deck will be open; there will be no programs in the classroom during June. We will be closed over the July 4th weekend (as usual). Then the observatory will resume regular operations (telescope deck and classroom programs) on July 10th. We request that unvaccinated visitors please wear masks. Note: Reopening plans require that the LLCHD Covid Risk Dial must remain in the Green Zone. If the dial shows a more dangerous reading (yellow or higher), the observatory will not be open. Also, during June, if skies are cloudy or rainy, i.e., telescopes can’t be used, the observatory won’t open. Welcome back to your Window on the Universe!
