Personal Observatory Dome (POD)

The POD is now up and running and was used for the December Full Cold Moon hike and star gazing. What you are seeing is a projection from the telescope, through the computer on to a large inflatable screen on the beach. This project is supported through the volunteerism and expertise of two local astronomers – Larry Glasheen and David Hall.  The Friends also support this project through our donation of the laptop that is used for the POD system. This is your membership and donation dollars at work and we thank everyone for their support!

Plans are in the works for summer 2021 to be able to bring more star gazing opportunities to the park. Stay tuned!
