Just letting you know if you live near the Mountain Home, Idaho area, Bruneau Dunes State Park has a public observatory open weekly Friday and Saturday nights starting at 5:00 PM Mountain Time. Admission is $4 per Vehicle into the park and $3 per person if the sky is clear for viewing.

Typical Evening Schedule:

It is nice that there is a public observatory there. The United States could use more public observatories and planetariums. Children have a natural interest in astronomy and space.
