[Note: As of this writing, the telescope will arrive at Beertopia on or about November 20, 2016. We anticipate offering public and private tours on or about December 10, 2016. Thank you for your patience.]
The WGC, in conjunction with the Oregon Observatory at Sunriver, will be offering tours of the cosmos. Here are some of the details:
Our tour starts at the Transporter Room for a brief overview of the upcoming tour of the Universe. From the Transporter Room, we will be going up to the Hopservatory for viewing of the heavens, and much more. You will get an overview of the sights we will look at, plus information on the telescope and equipment here at the Worthy Garden Club’s Hopservatory.
We will view multiple celestial objects, given the night sky and weather. We will also be providing a constellation tour of the night sky with a high power green laser, for your own personal guide tour of the heavens.
We will wrap things up with short period of discussion about what you have just viewed. We hope you will enjoy the awe and wonder of the universe, and how special Earth is, on your way down to the Transporter Room, for more food and drink.
The Hopservatory is operated by the Worthy Garden Club, a 501©(3) non profit foundation, in conjunction with the Oregon Observatory at Sunriver, also a non-profit. All proceeds from tours will go to the WGC to support science literacy programs and initiatives.
