Observatory closes again


The observatory’s policy is that the Lincoln/Lancaster County Covid Risk Dial must be in the Green (low risk) Zone for the observatory to be open. On July 27th, the LLC Health Department raised the dial to the Yellow (moderate risk) zone because of increasing cases of the Delta variant in the county. So, reluctantly, our Board has voted to close the observatory to protect our visitors and volunteers. The Risk Dial must be in the Green Zone for two consecutive weeks before we will open again. We hope that will be soon. Meantime, stay safe and keep looking up.
