Built in 1968 and 1998, the two domes of this facility house a beautifully refurbished antique 8-inch Clark telescope and a new state-of-the-art 24-inch research telescope. It serves as both an active research observatory and venue for public astronomical programs. Please note: public stargazing nights at Loines Observatory are cancelled if skies are too cloudy. If in doubt, please call 508-257-1117
