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 February is Dr John Spencer from the Southwest Research Institute in Boulder.
The title of his presentation is “NASA’s New Horizons Mission to Pluto and beyond”. Join Dr Spencer and the Little Thompson Observatory to discuss the many remarkable things that were learned about the Pluto system during this mission, and the plans for New Horizon’s continued exploration of the Kuiper Belt.
