Blending the beauty and science of the night sky

Welcome to the Hearst Observatory website.

The Hearst Observatory website is always a work in progress.  These pages cover the adventures we have taken to explore the hobby of astronomy over the last 38 years!  Explore all the pages, links, and don't forget to check back, because new content will be added and website improvements are never ending. This website is dedicated to sharing astronomy with anyone who would be interested.  All questions and comments, good or bad, are welcome at the link at the bottom.  Thank for exploring our website.
