With its new observatory, Colorado Mountain College is looking to the stars
Steamboat Springs has a new way to look to the skies: the recently installed Ball Observatory at Colorado Mountain College Steamboat Springs.
Local stargazers Bob and Ann Ball donated the telescope and the dome it’s housed in to the college this year. The Balls always intended to give the observatory to the college, Bob said. The Balls are moving to Fort Collins, and with the impending move, the time was right to donate the observatory that sat on top of their home near Emerald Mountain.
