Such a beautiful place! We camped, we hiked and and we shared views of the naturally dark night sky at Los Coyotes.
Thank you to our hosts Andrew, Lisset and the residents of Los Coyotes.
Curiosity Peak Observatory became operational in May, 2014, realizing a dream of two San Diego area amateur astronomers, Doug Sollosy and Todd Rogelstad to create an "open door to the universe" that would provide a space for our own astro-imaging travels, but also be a place where other astronomers and friends could come and enjoy the breath-taking dark sky views from our hilltop in Julian, California.
We are grateful to those who share in our vision of outreach and our love for astronomy, and have stepped up to help in the construction and ongoing development. Their efforts have helped us make Curiosity Peak an attractive venue for all.
We look forward to having many collaborators and visitors, from near and far, including those who have never seen the amazing sight of our own galactic home, the Milky Way, from a dark sky location like Julian. The sky is the limit, and all help and donations are needed and welcome!
In the spirit of Neil de Grasse Tyson, let us embark together on many cosmic voyages, and at the same time gain a greater appreciation of our own beautiful planetary home.
