Is there a lot of snow there? Is that why it is closed?

Scott Kardel said...

We are mostly closed because of our major maintenance project going on with the 200-inch telescope.

We do have some snow but it is melting fast. It is pretty much gone in every sunny place.

Will the parking lot/picnic area around the observatory be closed tomorrow? Is there enough snow for kids to play?

Scott Kardel said...

The parking lot & the entire observatory grounds are currently closed to the public.

The snow is melting fast. It is totally gone in the sunny areas but some does remain in the shady spots.
