    I found the stars, planets and moons fascinating to see. The observatory is open every Friday night weather prrmitting. To see different things they encouraged us to return frequently

    The dome was cold and spooky, the trip was educational. Never noticed the moon rises 45-50 minutes later every day and it stays in the sky during daytime just as long as it lights up the sky at night, only our poor eyes can not spot it under the sun; Most of the stars are binary or multiple, our Sun is an anomaly, a unary star...

    It was worth going to. I will go again when its warmer. Seeing Jupiter and the 4 moons was cool!

    The clouds parted at the last minute and the telescope was in use. Very enjoyable. A warning to future Buehler-goers: the dome with the telescope may appear to offer shelter from the cold, but it doesn't really. Dress like you would if you were going to be outdoors that night.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
