Grand Re-Opening!

A crowd of between 250 and 300 gathered for the Grand Re-Opening and ribbon cutting ceremony on September 8, 2017. Following the moving remarks of President Sakaki and the kind words of Provost Vollendorf and Dean Stauffer, Observatory Director Scott Severson directed the crowds attention to the ribbon cutting ceremony. Once the ribbon was cut, the observatory roof rolled open and the new facility was opened to the public. Despite the clouds rolling in, the crowd enjoyed the evening of photos, cocoa, cookies, a tour of the facility, an inflatable planetarium from the SSU Education and Public Outreach group, music and good conversation!
