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 November 20, 2015 will be Astronaut Loren Shriver. The title of his talk will be “Deploying the Hubble Space Telescope”.
