What will it look like?
Built by the community, for the community.
We have a large task ahead of us, but together, anything is possible. Our vision takes us to an area just outside the city of Tucson, avoiding the main light pollution, to a facility that's large enough to host 30-50 people. It will have offices for our volunteer staff, a secure storage area for our equipment, a large room with tables for volunteer work i.e. Family Food box building and Homeless Outreach/Backpack stuffing), and a "Roll Off Roof" observatory (a large shed or room large enough for 10 people, equipped with a roof that's on rollers to completely open up to the lies above), attached to the main building. This will house 1 - 2 large telescopes on piers, contain educational décor and have a warm-room(control room that's separate from the open-roof area. This is the best option, as an observatory dome is extremally expensive and limited to one telescope with a small opening(not ideal for education and stargazing).
