Read Frosty Drew Observatory and Science Center's Update on the Novel Coronavirus

Log, Dec 22, 2000

No people. This is getting to be a real bore. We have another wipe out from bands of snow showers which sweep in from the west. They don't add much stuff but it is enough to make any chance to open the dome.

On Monday I had a chance to visit Vassar's fine new Observatory. It has twin domes (Keck East?) on the south side of a Quonsett hut like heated building. A small third dome is to the north. Vassar has the largest telescope in New York, a 32 inch telescope (primarily instrumented). The second telescope is 20 inches (primarily visual).
