See our universe through the telescopes for yourself.
Powell Observatory: 10297 W. 263rd St. / Louisburg, KS 66053
Map & Directions:
Take US-69 South to 247th St. exit.
Turn left. Take first right onto Metcalf Rd. About 4 minutes to:
W. 263rd Street (turn right). Take for 3 minutes and stay right on W. 263rd. Powell Observatory (with the dome) will be on the right.
Details: We'll get to use the whole observatory for the night - it has a 30-inch telescope and there's another
16-inch in an outside shed.
Bring your own telescope or binoculars if you have them. You can set them up on the outside and offer more objects to view.
There may be other amateur astronomers with their own 8-, 10- and 12-inch telescopes and they normally are more than happy
to share with you what they are looking at.
Besides the dome, they have a room that will seat 30 or so people.
RSVP to help us plan!
