In partnership with the Astronomical Society of the Pacific
MUDDY RUN Observatory
Muddy Run Observatory will be an astronomer's dream in your own back yard. Located in Southern Lancaster County (Holtwood PA), this observatory is currently under construction and plans to be open to the public for selected events in 2017.
This past October (2016) we celebrated an Open House at the Observatory at which the Rittenhouse Astronomical Society awarded it's Rittenhouse Medal to Professor Freeman Dyson. Members of the society, guests and Exelon representatives attended for an overview of educational and observational plans for the facility.
