Begin or sustain your interest in astronomy at LTO! The night sky is wondrous, filled with countless swirling galaxies, the planets, the moon, and so much more. Many of these sights are easily visible from Earth, but few people have witnessed them personally.
The Little Thompson Observatory can change that for you. Our mission is to help people of all ages learn about the universe by offering a first-hand experience with astronomy...
Our guest speaker for Friday June 20, 2016 will be Dr Suzanne Metlay from Western Governors University.
The talk will be about the 5 moons of Pluto.
Dr Metlay will help us learn about the family of objects orbiting our solar system’s first known dwarf planet as professional geoscientists struggle to explain what we see and why it’s there. Let's celebrate the success of the New Horizons mission!
