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 January is Dr Gordon MacAlpine, retired astronomer and member of the Estes Valley Astronomical Society.
The title of his presentation is “Cosmology with Quasars: Dinosaurs of the Universe”. Join Dr MacAlpine and the Little Thompson Observatory to discuss what quasars are, how they were discovered, how they work, and the lingering controversy about their nature.
