The second in a series of snowstorms has pushed through northern Arizona. Once again, the Observatory’s ace grounds crew has cleared off the snow we received and Lowell is open for tours. (See hours and admission). Today there are some lovely drifts on the roofs of buildings and trees on Mars Hill are covered with snow pyramids. If you are planning to visit Lowell Observatory this week, do check area road conditions and weather information from the National Weather Service before you begin your trip to Flagstaff.
Thanks to the Arizona Daily Sun for the online and printed notices regarding the Observatory’s postponement of an announcement scheduled for this morning. The announcement and small event for area media will be rescheduled for Weds. Jan. 27th.
