The Sheep Hill Observatory in Boonton, NJ will be open to the general public tonight 6/21 and tomorrow 6/22 starting at 8:30pm. All are invited and welcome to attend. We will be viewing the "super" moon, and other objects currently in the sky.

Also on Sunday 6/23, the observatory will be open all day for solar viewing. We have a white light filter for the observatory scope and will have several other telescopes set up, including a Lunt h-alpha scope.

The observatory, which houses an 18 inch newtonian reflector, is located at the end of Ross Drive, in Boonton, NJ. Directions and more information can be found here: http://www.sheephillastro.org/

Hello,
What other times is the observatory open? I belong to NJAG and my want to see if some of our other club members would like to come up sometime in the summer.
