WMAA will not have a regular monthly meeting. We will instead be present at the Blue Mountain Observatory open houses throughout the summer with telescopes and information. The dates are as follows, and more information about start times as well as ticket reservations can be found on their website. Please check their website for information on the weather before heading up for any of these events!
Ever wanted to use a telescope, but don’t want to buy one? If you have a library card with the Missoula Public Library, you can check out a telescope for free! Interested folks can checkout the scope pictured below via the Missoula Public Library through a cooperative program with the Western Montana Astonomical Association. For more information about the telescope and its use, contact our president, Nick Wethington, through the Contact Us form.
This program is based on a similiar one now operating in New Hampshire. For the New Hampshire program please see: NHAS Library Telescope Program
