Modine-Benstead Observatory Open House We invite you to come to one of our public nights and view the heavens through our telescopes. We will have the observatory telescopes open and many of the club’s members will have their telescopes available to view through. Depending on what is up each night, we will view the moon, planets, and many deep sky objects.
Public night open house events are held monthly from April through October and there is no charge for admission or parking. Your many questions are expected and welcomed, since part of our club mission is to educate and inspire each of you to participate in the world of amatuer astronomy.
Astronomical equipment you’ll find at the Modine-Benstead Observatory will range from a few hundred to several thousand dollars in value. Listening to someone describe viewing an object in our solar system though a telescope for the very first time....Priceless! The night of an open house there will be a message on the observatory answering machine if the skies are cloudy.
