Unlike most observatories, the Blueberry Pond Observatory warmly welcomes walk-in visitors as well as large tour groups to explore their facilities and even has a wide selection of prepared guided tours for visitors to choose from. Guided tours for walk-ins allow visitors to make use of the observatory?s telescopes and other equipment as well as use the observatory?s digital cameras to have souvenir photos to take home. One of its newest offerings is a take-home program that enables participants to enjoy remote and robotic access to the observatory?s equipment. This is perfect for those who wish to conduct astronomy experiments or projects straight from the comfort of their homes. The observatory?s star parties are also quite popular, which are perfect for groups of twenty to forty persons and include telescope-aided star gazing activities as well as astronomy presentations and digital photography sessions. Also available at the observatory are daytime tours and photographic astronomy courses.
For those planning to visit, the observatory?s official website provides tips on what astronomical highlights to look out for in a particular season.
