Indian Hill - Our Observing Home

It all started in 1963 with 2 junior high boys looking for a way to share their hobby and culminated with the building of Indian Hill Observatory. Thousands or hours of volunteer labor by many former and current members helped contribute to our goals of promotion of public education in astronomy, the continuation of useful research, and the preservation of unpolluted skies for future use of both the astronomer and the general public.

The hill in 1979 after the trees were taken down and before it was leveled.
