Observatory Tours

Sunday, August 25, 2019, 9:30 PM

Free observatory tour at the Oliver Observing Station - See MIRA's 36-inch professional research telescope, learn some of the unique history that led to MIRA and the Oliver Observing Station (now in its 30th year), and discover how our mountaintop scientific research runs on solar and wind power and collects rainwater. Voted the best place to watch the stars in Monterey County, the Oliver Observing Station on Chews Ridge is actually one of the best places in the continental U.S. for optical astronomy. High in the Santa Lucia Mountains, an afternoon on Chews Ridge also provides excellent views of the Ventana Wilderness, the Salinas Valley, the Monterey Peninsula, and, on a clear day, the Sierra Nevada. Space is limited so reservations for these free events are required. Please call 883-1000 to make reservations and get directions.
