ماذا ستفعل

Spend an evening among the stars at Little Thompson Observatory! With two telescopes, two constellation walls, and knowledgeable guides, the Little Thompson Observatory is just the place to experience the vast universe. Just before sunset, we'll start the evening with cosmic lemonade, moon pies, and a space trivia competition. The winning trivia team will walk away with an incredible space-themed prize basket! Once night falls, the real show begins. We'll orient ourselves to the sky using the observatory's amazing star map. We’ll learn about their observational equipment, including the story of how they acquired an Apollo 11 telescope. Then you'll have the chance to gaze through that very same telescope! Throughout the evening, check out the hand-painted map of Lakota constellations and ask the observatory’s experts questions about the telescope and the cosmos.

Hi. I’m Hannah, a member of the Atlas Obscura community.

Thanks to a backyard telescope and a star map, my passion for space started when I was a kid. I love to paint galaxies and stargaze at the Little Thompson Observatory. It's truly one of my favorite places and one of Denver’s best kept secrets. I've been partnering with our space expert, Meinte Veldhuis, to create magical stargazing experiences for the past year. His passion and knowledge for space inspires me! I'll join him and you in starry wonder and I'll be happy to recommend some of my other favorite local treasures.

أين ستكون

We'll spend our evening at the Little Thompson Observatory. It is home to a piece of NASA history—the very special 24" Mount Wilson Telescope! It was built for NASA’s Apollo program. Around 1963, scientists used it to study the Moon to prove that the lunar surface was solid and safe for landing. The observatory is also home to the 18” Tinsley Classical Cassegrain Telescope and star wall.

I would repeat this trip over and over. It’s unfortunate that it is so dependent on having clear skies, but that is just the nature of astronomy. It was a night filled with wonder, laughter and learning.

What a great experience! What could be better than the stars, cosmic juice, and moon pies? You will get all of this and so much more! Guides are experts at sharing information and education about the solar system and the telescopes that are housed at the observatory. Fun stories and an open and easy forum to share as well as a fun trivia session make this a unique and great experience for all ages.

Talk about hidden gem!! I live in Denver, and I will suggest this experience to all my friends. The sky ended up being cloudy for the first part of the night, but the hosts were prepared-- they had had fascinating mini-lectures, trivia games, and conversation topics for us to pass the time until the sky cleared. AND IT WAS WORTH THE WAIT. The sky was beautiful, and the hosts were delightful and extremely knowledgeable about the science of the stars. Highly recommend!!

Amazing night with the telescopes. Meinte Veldhuis' talks were fascinating with both the telescopes and the star wall. My last view through the Apollo 11 telescope was stunning. "My god, it's full of stars."

This was exceptional stargazing - planets, stars, binary stars, nebulas, even galaxies. The hosts were knowledgeable and friendly and made the whole event good for experts as well as new gazers. Would definitely recommend it and hope to do it again.
