Private Lowell Observatory Tour - November 18, 2018

On Sunday November 18th following the AAVSO Annual meeting in Flagstaff the Lowell Observatory will provide a private tour for AAVSO meeting participants and their families. Lowell is planning to do telescope viewing through their Clark Telescope and a Pluto Telescope Dome tour. The tour is expected to start at 5:00pm and end at 10:00pm. Sunset is at 5:19pm, so they plan for the Pluto tour at 5:00pm and then proceed with telescope viewing at 6:00pm. 

The schedule will look as the following:

  • 5:00 - 6:00pm Pluto Telescope Dome Tour
  • 6:00 - 10:00pm Pluto Telescope Dome Open House
  • 6:00 - 10:00pm Telescope viewing through the Clark telescope

If you would like to take the tour you will be able to select it as an option on your Annual Meeting registration when it becomes available online later this summer. There is no charge for the tour. Lowell would like a head count in advance of the November 1st

Marriott Residence Inn has extended the discounted rate to include November 18th so AAVSO members who go on the tour can extend their stay.
