Pikes Peak Observatory

Every year at COSine we hold a charity raffle, and for 2020 the charity we will be supporting is the Pikes Peak Observatory. The goal of the Pikes Peak Observatory initiative is to build a 1-meter research-quality observatory telescope on the summit of Pikes Peak, along with educational exhibits. The observatory was part of the design for the Summit House, but got temporarily shelved while Pikes Peak Highway was being paved.

PPO also has various other initiatives, like building a mobile observatory that can be taken to schools.

It is a fair bet that we will all be in line to use the telescope once it is put in place!
