Gunnison Valley Observatory offers access to professional quality star gazing and knowledge of astronomy. Our 30-inch reflector telescope maximizes our thin and unpolluted Rocky Mountain atmosphere to bring distant astronomical vistas to the eyes of residents and visitors of the Gunnison Valley.
The 2011 Gunnison Valley Observatory’s regular season schedule is an exceptional program all summer long with science educators enlightening us at every event. The observatory will open soon for the summer season. We thank the entire community for making our educational outreach programs so much fun.
       Gunnison Valley Observatory offers many exciting ways to support its mission and goals.  You can attend the summer Friday lecture series and telescope viewings, volunteer, book a private showing or become a financial sponsor.  For more information about the observatory, please contact Gunnison Valley Observatory.
