Public Access

Badlands Observatory is currently available for private showings to individual groups or civic groups on a reservation basis. Because this activity takes time away from the scientific work being performed at the observatory, it is recommended that the groups contain at least 10, but not more than 20 people. Individual showings are discouraged. There is no fee associated with this service, but donations would be gladly accepted in order to help offset operational costs and help towards equipment upgrades. Arrangements can be made by contacting Ron Dyvig.

Eventually, the observatory will be open on selected nights each month for public observing.  Please check back to this site for the details and schedule to come.

NOTICE: For the time being, Badlands Observatory is not available for public access.  Please check back later for updates.
