About the Little Thompson Observatory (LTO):
The Observatory is located on the grounds of Berthoud High School in Berthoud, CO. They’re an all-volunteer organization that survives on donations of time, talent, and money. The Observatory offers no-charge public access to the wonders of the night sky, either on one of our regularly scheduled public nights, or as a private group affair. When the weather co-operates, each session includes a guided tour of the sky using our large 18-inch telescope. Operated by the Little Thompson Science Foundation, the LTO has supported K-12 science education since 1996.
