Ashcroft Observatory

Information: Cameron Pace (435) 586-1920

The Ashcroft Observatory is located on the hilltop just south of the SUU farm on Westview Drive.

OPEN NIGHTS

In keeping with a long-standing tradition stemming from its opening in the early 1970s, the Observatory remains focused on community involvement and learning opportunities. The Ashcroft Observatory is open every Monday night to all those interested in learning about constellations or viewing distant parts of the galaxy. Interested parties should plan on arriving at the observatory just as the sun sets. As weather or other conditions might alter this schedule, before driving out, please check our Facebook page to confirm we will be open.

This is a free opportunity, and has been of great use in the past to school groups, scout groups and families, but all are welcome and encouraged to enjoy the splendor in the skies.
