Space is incredibly fascinating. It kind of goes without saying, right? We learn new things about what is outside of Earth often and we will continue to do so for the rest of our lives.

Northern Colorado has some of the clearest skies for stargazing in the country. On most nights, we have clear skies to look at stars, other planets, and patterns.

A free event is happening in Berthoud this weekend. The event will give you some key insights and you will learn a thing or two about astronomy.

These telescopes will allow you to look into the cosmos and you will be able to look at space like you have never seen before.

When And Where to Go


The Little Thompson Observatory is located at 850 Spartan Ave, Berthoud, CO. The doors will open at 7:00 p.m. Attendees can begin observing at 8:00 p.m. and the event will go until 10:00 p.m.

This is a public and free event. If the weather is an issue, Little Thompson Observatory will have activities inside of its facilities.

This seems like such a fun event to bring the whole family to. There are no reservations required either. So if you need something to do on Friday night, we would highly recommend this.
